How To Perform Exercise

The dumbbell walking lunge exercise helps strengthen the leg and core muscles through constant motion.

Steps :

2.) Stand with your feet about 8 inches apart, toes facing forward.

3.) Take a lunge forward keeping your abs drawn in and your upper body straight.

4.) Slowly lower one knee down as if kneeling while keeping your other knee bent at a 90 degree angle.

5.) Lower your body to just above the floor and hold for a moment before pushing off with the back foot.

6.) Step through and repeat the exercise with the other leg.

Tips :

1.) Refrain from touching your knee to the ground.
