Squat with Rotation

To do the Squat with Rotation, hold a weight in both hands. If you keep your arms out straight at shoulder height, this move will work your upper back, shoulders and arms even more. You can also do this with your elbows bent in by your sides and the weight in right above your belly button if you want to focus more on the rotation and less on your upper body. Either way, hold the weight in front of you while standing with your feet between hip-width and shoulder-width apart.

Then sink down into a deep squat, sitting your butt back. Keep your chest up at the bottom of the squat. Then rotate the weight toward one side. Stay low as you rotate. Bring the weight back center and then rotate to the other side.

Bring the weight back center and then stand up before repeating the squat and rotation to each side.
