Dumbbell front squat

These work your full body but can also be done without weights if you don’t have them for an anytime workout on-the-go for your legs. Targets: full body, back, butt/hips, thighs.

Starting position: Stand up tall with your feet slightly wider than hip-width apart. Roll your shoulders up to your ears and pull them back. Hold a dumbbell in each hand with your palms facing towards you.

Squat: Hinge at your hips, lower them back and down and bend your knees as if you’re sitting in a chair. Take a look down and make sure your knee doesn’t travel past your big toe (you should see your big toe when you look down). Your thighs should be parallel to the floor and your legs at a 90 degree angle. Keep your back flat.

Lift up: Keeping your abdominals engaged, lift up to starting position. Push through your heels and keep them flat on the floor.
