Reps: 10 per leg

Keeping your upper body straight and shoulders back, step forward with one leg. Lower your hips until both knees are bent at a 90-degree angle. Ensure that your front knee is directly above your ankle and that your opposite knee does not touch the floor. Keep your weight in your heels as you push back up to the starting position. 

Challenge: Do a bicep curl with dumbbells while lunging to work your upper body as well. 

Pushups

Reps: 15

Laying stomach-down on the ground, set your hands under your body at a distance that is slightly wider than shoulder-width apart and align your feet in a way that is comfortable for you. This may be shoulder-width apart or touching. Lift your body to straighten your arms and tighten your corn. Gently bend your elbows to bring your chest to the floor, pause slightly and explode back to your starting position with your arms straightened.

Challenge: Instead of keeping your hands shoulder-width apart, form a diamond shape with your hands, keeping your arms tight at your side as you move through a pushup. 

Reverse Lunges

Reps: 10 per leg

Similar to a forward lunge, keep your upper body straight and shoulders back, but stepping backward with one leg. Lower your hips so that your front leg becomes parallel to the floor, ensuring that your knee does not extend past your ankle. Your back leg should be bent at a 90-degree angle and pointing toward the floor with your heel lifted. Return to standing by pressing your heel into the floor and bringing your front leg forward to complete one rep.

Challenge: Do a bicep curl with dumbbells while lunging to work your upper body as well.
