The lunge with shoulder press exercise is great for targeting your lower body, your core, and your shoulder muscles. Use weights ranging from 5 lbs to 12 lbs, depending on your fitness and comfort level. To avoid injury, be sure to keep your shoulders down and your shoulder blades slightly contracted.

Step By Step Instructions

Step 1

Holding the weights just above your shoulders at a 90-degree angle at the elbows, stand up straight, with your legs hipwidth apart.

 Step 2

Lower body by bending your knees, focusing on keeping your back knee pointed toward the ground while your upper body stays in an upright position. Return to your starting position (standing).

 Step 3

Press the weights up until your arms are straight overhead, then lower weights back to the starting position. Focus on not letting your back sway too far forward.
