Exercise of the Week - Side Lunge With Front Raise

By June 9, 2008

Follow me on:

The side lunge with front (anterior) raise is a "combo" exercise that works legs, and arms and shoulders together.

side lunge with front raise

  1. Stand upright with a dumbbell in each hand at the sides.
  2. Take a large step to one side yet slightly out in front while you raise the dumbbells to shoulder height in front of you at the same time.
  3. Return to starting position, then repeat for the other side with the other leg.
  4. This exercise could be done with a standard forward lunge, but the side lunge provides better balance.
  5. Try to keep the knee from protruding beyond the tips of the toes at full lunge.
  6. Breathe out on exertion and in on recovery.

I would love to get on a new workout routine for the summer! I feel like in the winter time I hardly get to exercise at all. Life is just so busy with all the holidays and school. Summer is definitely a better time for me to have a steady and effective workout schedule! http://www.parkerpediatrics.com
