Target Muscles:

Lower back, Glutes (butt), hamstrings

How To:

• Stand feet a little closer than shoulder width apart with a small bend in your knees, dumbbell in each hand with hands facing your legs

• With a straight back and shoulders pulled back, bend at your waist, slowly lower the dumbbells toward the floor until back is parallel with floor, keeping back straight

• Exhale and slowly lift yourself back into the starting position keeping your back straight and focusing your energy on your hamstrings

Important: Focus your eyes forward to keep your back in the correct position. Don’t round your shoulders or your back. Make sure you keep proper form throughout so you don’t hurt your back.
