Tip of the Day--ALL IN ONE MOVE

If you are short on time...or short on patience...try this all in one move to work every muscle in your body.

How to Do It
1. Stand holding a pair of dumbbells at your shoulders.
2. Take a big step forward with your right leg and bend at the knees until that leg is parallel to the floor and your rear knee is just off the floor.
3. Press the left-hand weight overhead, lower it, and then push back to the starting position.
4. Step out with your other leg and complete the press with your opposite arm.
That's 1 rep. Do a total of 8 reps. Repeat 2-3 times.
On those days when it's either no workout or a mini workout. Try this exercise with a set of abs and a set of modified pull ups for a mini circuit. Do all three exercises right in a row and repeat 3 times. If you can, add a couple of minutes of jump rope after each mini circuit.

This looks like one of Chrissy's moves from her class. I always have a hard time doing multiple things at one time!
