Walking lunge with bicep curl

1. Stand upright, feet together, holding a dumbbell by your sides.

2. Take a controlled step forward with your left leg, keeping your elbows close to the body.  Lower hips toward the floor and bend both knees (almost at 90-degree angles). The back knee should come close but never touch the ground. Your front knee should be directly over the ankle, and the back knee should be pointing down toward the floor.

3. Push off with your right foot and bring it forward, raising your leg, curling the dumbbells to your shoulders, then lowering the dumbbells to your side. This completes 1 rep.

4. Next, step forward and repeat with the right leg.
