This is an amazing exercise for targeting your lower body, shoulder muscles, quadriceps, and hamstrings. Start with 5 lb weights for this exercise, and progress to heavier weights as you are able.
Step By Step Instructions
Stand with your feet slightly wider than shoulder width apart. Holding weights, raise your arms to a 90-degree angle with your palms facing out.
Squat straight down as far as you can. As you squat, focus on keeping your hips back.
Stand back up, then lift the weights above your head, driving your hands close together.
