Upper back Core: Lunges with Front Row

A: Start in a lunge—right leg back, left leg bent with knee over your toe—hold two weights in front of you at the waist level. Before starting you should feel some challenge.

B: Push off with your right toe and raise your right leg until your thigh is bent to the side while simultaneously bending your elbows toward your body in a rowing motion. You will feel muscle tension in your upper, middle back, core and hip. Return to starting position. Repeat 15 times, then switch legs. This is one set.
