GOOD FORM

Work arms and legs together

September 28, 2009|Karen Voight

Here's an excellent way to simultaneously train the large muscles in your lower body and your shoulders and biceps. You can use a kettlebell or substitute a dumbbell.

-- Karen Voight

1 Hold a kettlebell or dumbbell in your right hand. Stand with your feet 3 to 3 1/2 feet apart, toes pointing forward. Place your left hand on your left thigh, inhale and bend your left knee. Shift your weight over your left heel and keep your right leg straight. Lean forward, reaching down with your right hand until the kettlebell is just below your left knee.

2 On an exhale, simultaneously push off your left leg, straighten your torso upright, raise the kettlebell to your right shoulder and lift your left leg off the floor. Pause for two seconds in the upright positions. Lower your left leg and repeat the exercise eight to 12 times. Switch sides and repeat on the other side.
