This exercise is a smoker. :)
Proceed with caution:
Your knees should not collapse or wobble.
Your chest should be lifted throughout the exercise.
Pull your shoulders back
Even distribute your weight into your legs as you lunge.
1.) Start this exercise standing with your weight out in front of you with your arms straight.
2.) As you step back to lunge, twist your upper body, carrying the weight over your front leg.
3.) Keep both arms straight as you twist.
4.) As you step forward, out of the reverse lunge, twist the upper body back to center with both arms bent in a bicep curl
5.) Press the weight directly over the crown of your head.
I recommend 3- 4 sets of 15 -25 reps per leg.
The weight should be challenging but you should be able to maintain good form the entire time.

Michele has been my Pilates trainer for over a year now. Since working with her weekly, I have now regained the body I longed for after having three children. I am lean, happy, and feel strong and healthy. Her expertise regarding the body's structures is incredible. With each session I find myself more and more impressed with how easily she can alter the program to accommodate my particular needs of the day, and the results are truly amazing. She can motivate you beyond your own expectations but still never seems too demanding. I actually enjoy working with her immensely. All the compliments I get now are not too bad either! Give it a try with her, you will not be disappointed.
