Train your brain: exercise 1

Starting position: Stand next to each other and step forward with your inner foot, holding an end of the band with the outer hand and a dumbbell with the inner hand.

Bend your knees in a 90° angle to perform a lunge while extending the band. Return to starting position and bring the dumbbell   straight in front of your chest.

1 set x 15-20 reps on each side.

To make it more difficult start with legs together and take a long step backwards to perform the lunge.
