Exercise Steps 2

Step

Step right leg back, bending knees, gently lowering right knee all the way to the floor, then bring left knee to the floor, lowering into a kneeling position. Step left foot forward, bending knee at 90 degrees, and stand up to return to starting position (arms should remain extended overhead the entire time) to complete one rep. Do the prescribed number of reps, and then switch sides to complete set. Too tough? Master this move without dumbbells first. For more comfort, try folding a yoga mat or towel under knees.
