Squat to Overhead Press
This squat/press combo works your quads, butt, and hamstring, and also your abs and shoulders. To do it, stand with your feet shoulder-width apart. Either using a bar with weights or hand weights held at shoulder height. Lower your body into a squat with your weight in your heels. Push through your heels to stand up and press weights or bar overhead. Return to starting position.
The good thing about this awesome exercise is that you can create so many variations to target different muscle groups. And, it’s 's easy to do them almost anywhere. Place your hands just wider than shoulder-width apart with your toes tucked under, your body in a plank position. Lower yourself to the ground, keeping your muscles engaged. Touch your nose to the ground and extend your arms, push back up. Repeat as many times as you can.
Planks might be the best core workout there is. All you do, too, is lie facedown with your toes tucked and hold your body in a flat, belly-button-pulled-in position with your forearms on the ground, for 30 seconds to a minute (more if you can). Then, rest, and repeat. Planks work your back, abs, and shoulders.
