Hi, I'm Denise Druce, a fitness instructor in Salt Lake City, Utah. Let's look at how to do a cross lunge. American Council on Exercise calls this one of the best ways to strengthen the legs, the quads, the glutes, the hamstrings all in one exercise. It's kind of like a curtsy so you'll start with dumbbells in your hands at either side of you and then shifting your weight to one foot, you'll cross the other leg behind you and then slowly lowering your body down and pushing back up to hip distance apart. And you want to really be careful to watch the angle of your knees. If this creates any pain in your knees, you don't want to bend down quite as far or do it with less weight. Start with 10 to 12 repetitions and work your way up to 16 to 20 cross lunges. I'm Denise Druce. For more fitness tips, please check out my website.
