I am all about working multiple muscle groups at the same time! Can you say bye bye calories!?
This post I will demonstrate a squat to overhead press:
Step 1: Start in an athletic stance, feet hip width apart, knees slightly bent, chest out, shoulders back and head up. This is the starting position for many resistance exercises. Here I used 10lb dumbbells (you can use any weight you are comfortable with or just practice with no weight at all!). Start with weights at about chest level.
Step 2: Descend down into a squat. Here you are pushing you hips and glutes back and making sure your knees do not exceed your toes!
Step 3: After completing the full squat, push up out of it through your heels.
Step 4: As you are coming up, push the dumbbells up into a full over head press. Make sure to keep your back nice and straight and maintain your athletic stance!
Add it to your routine and you are sure to feel the burn!
