Lunges with Weight to Hit Several Muscles

Grab two weight that you can easily lift to your shoulders with your palms facing inward or downward. They can be "dumbbells" or octagonal weights.

Perform lunges, lifting the weights to shoulder level as you descend for the lunge, and as you descend to starting position as you rise. At the same time, twist to the right for one lunge, and to the left for the next lunge, alternating to work y our abdominal muscles, including your obliques. Do four sets of ten repetitions.

My third book, Pocket Guide to Fitness, is available on and If you look up my name on those Web sites, you will find my other books The Boy in a Wheelchair and Life, Work and Play: Poems and Short Stories. These two books are on my Web site and like, if you so see fit, my book page at
