Lateral lunge with dumbbells

Zancada lateral con marcuernas


Select the appropriate weight of the dumbbells. Stand up straight with your feet at shoulder width apart. Grab the dumbbells at the sides of your shoulders as you keep the elbows bent and in line with your torso. Your hands should be slightly wider than shoulder-width apart.


Do a lateral step separating your right foot from the other. Your feet should be wider than shoulder width apart. Lower your body towards your right side bending the right knee and hip and while you keep the left leg slightly bent. Return to the starting position and extend your arms to push the dumbbells straight up until your elbows are extended but not locked out. Slowly lower the weight until your hands are just above your shoulders. Repeat the movement for the specified amount of repetitions, then switch sides and repeat the exercise.

TIPS: Your arms should always be perpendicular to the floor. Focus on always having your weight on the entire soles of your feet. Your head and chest should always look forward.
