Strengthens your legs and hips
Holding 3-pound dumbbells, stand with feet farther than hip-width apart, toes slightly turned out, knees bent 90 degrees. Pull your abs in and move your hands in front of your hips, plams down. Inhale, then exhale as you straighten your legs and raise both arms above your head into a V (palms facing front). Squeeze your shoulder blades together, keeping your abs contracted. Inhale as you lower your arms. Do 5 reps, working up to 15.
