Lunge Punch Instructions
1. Stand straight with your feet hip-width apart and hold a dumbbell in each hand.
2. Position the dumbbells at shoulder height with your palms facing each other.
3. Take a step back with your left leg, flex your knees and push your left arm out in a punching motion.
4. Stand back up, switch legs and repeat.
5. Keep alternating legs until the set is complete.
Proper Form And Breathing Pattern
Maintain your feet hip-width apart throughout the entire exercise, tighten your core, keep your back straight, open your chest and don’t extend your arms completely. Breathe out as you lunge and push your arm out, and breathe in as you return to the starting position.

The lunge punch strengthens and shapes your glutes, quads, hamstrings, shoulders, core, arms, and lats. This is a compound move that works several muscles simultaneously, speeds up the metabolism and helps with weight loss.
