The added weight provides more benefit to your quadriceps, hamstrings, glutes, and calves, as well as helping you improve balance.

To get started:

  1. With a shoulder width stance, hold two dumbbells at your sides, with a palms in grip.
  2. Ensure your shoulders are pulled back, chest up, and core is engaged throughout the entire movement.
  3. Take one step forward with one leg, then bend your knees to lower your body towards the ground, until your front thigh is parallel to the ground, and your back knee is just 1 inch above the ground.
  4. Ensure your front shin is also perpendicular to the ground.
  5. Do not allow your front knee to lean past your toes.
  6. Press your feet through the ground to push back up to standing, then repeat with the other leg.
