Full-Body Metabolism-Boosting Exercises

Dumbbell lunge

You can either do these standing in one place or, for a bit of variety and to give yourself an end marker, while moving across a room. Targets: full body, abs, butt/hips, thighs.

Starting position: Stand up tall with your feet about hip width apart. Roll your shoulders up to your ears and down your back while engaging your abs (like always!).

Lunge forward: Keep your left foot planted firmly into the ground and lift your right foot off the floor. Take a big step forward with your right foot, heel first, and lower yourself down until your thigh is parallel with the floor. Push back with your left foot through your heel and keep your hips squared forward. Keep your chest up and look straight ahead.

Lift up: Push off through the heel of your right foot and lift back up to starting position. Keep working on one side or alternate between the two until you’ve completed 10 reps on each side.
