1 Move, 8 Muscle Groups

Don’t shy away from weights! They are essential to maintaining a healthy weight, strong bones, and a tight physique.

Since time is of the essence for all of us, weight workouts that use more than one muscle group at a time are your best bet to get the most out of lifting weights.

Here is a move that incorporates 8 different muscle groups in one move.

Reverse Lunge with Shoulder Press

Muscle Groups Worked:

  1. Quads
  2. Glutes
  3. Hamstrings
  4. Deltoids
  5. Triceps
  6. Trapezius
  7. Pectoralis Major
  8. Biceps

To do a reverse lunge with shoulder press (view video here):

  1. Hold a dumbbell (choose your desired weight) in each hand and raise to shoulder level, palms facing out.
  2. Stand  with your feet together.
  3. Take a step backward with your right leg.
  4. Bend both your knees until your right knee  is almost touching the floor.
  5. As you lunge backwards, press the dumbbells directly over your head.
  6. Push off with your right leg and return to the sanding  position, while lowering the weights back to shoulder level.
  7. Repeat with left leg, and this completes one rep.

1 move, 8 muscles groups- A time saver for sure!
