Pendulum Lunge with Mountain Arms

Pendulum Lunge with Mountain Arms

Not only is it a great cardio exercise, but it chisels the glutes, quads and hamstrings, lifts the booty and works the shoulders and arms – and it trims the waist. Do 3 sets of 10 reps 3 times a week.

How To Do It:

  • Stand with feet hip-width apart, a paper plate under each foot. Hold a resistance band straight out in front of you, pulled taut.
  • Bring arms overhead.
  • Slide right foot forward, creating a 90-degree angle, as you float arms down to shoulder level.
  • Hold for 5 counts, then pulse hips up and down 10 times. Open right arm out and back.
  • Bring it back to center, then drag right leg in and raise arms to return to beginning. Repeat entire sequence on opposite side. That’s one rep.
