BodyRock Boot Camp 5: Squats Shoulders and Lifts exercise

May 7, 2009
Visit site
In this exercise I am combining squat and forward raise with one leg lift and lateral raise. It is pretty simple technically, but physically it is a really demanding exercise.

Start by standing with your feet shoulder width apart, holding your dumbbells in each hand on your sides. Squat down and perform a front raise simultaneously. Your arms should make a 90 degree angle with your upper body. Keep your shoulders back and down. Rise back up and immediately go into the lateral raise and leg lift. Alternate the legs after each squat. When performing the lateral raises, make sure that your shoulders are not shrugging.

Enjoy this exercise!
