Fitness Fridays

What is your worst thing about wearing a swimming suit?  Belly jiggle?  Bat wings?  Butt that looks like it survived a hail storm?  Inner thighs that rub together?  Ouch.  Abrasive. 

Here is a cool modified squat that hits all those trouble spots.  Butt, arms, thighs, core.  Boom.

Step 1:  Stand with feet a little more than shoulder width apart and point your toes out slightly.  Hold a dumbbell (5-12 lbs. depending on your fitness level) in front at waist level.
Step 2:  Keeping your arms straight, lift the weight to shoulder height as you lower slowly into a squat.  Hold for 2 counts and then slowly return to the starting position.
***Always maintain control of your movements.  NO swinging!***
