Day 227: Weighted Swings

Leave a comment

This exercise targets your shoulders, back, butt, and legs.

Weights - no attribution neededHow To Do It:

  1. Stand with your feet slightly wider than shoulder-width apart, toes turned slightly outward, holding a single 8- to 10-pound dumbbell in your left hand in front of your hips. Your palm should be facing in towards your body.
  2. Squat, keeping your knees behind your toes (if you cannot see your toes when you look down then you are too far forward), and swing the dumbbell back between your legs.
  3. Quickly stand up, swinging your left arm up in front of you at shoulder level. Immediately return to a squat position.
  4. Do 15 reps or continue for 30 seconds. Switch sides and repeat.
