Dumbbell Squat and Overhead Press

Good for working the shoulders, glutes and quads

For this exercise you will need a pair of dumbbells (or perhaps a couple of cans of baked beans)

Stand with your feet shoulder width apart holding the dumbbells at shoulder height.

Push your hips back and lower into a squat. Keep your chest facing forward and your knees over your toes.

Return to standing position and push the dumbbells straight up.

Lower the dumbbells to shoulder height.

That is one repetition. Begin by performing a set of 5 and work up over the month to a set of 15.
