You Will Need
- A light dumbbell

- A clean floor area about three sq. ft.
Grab dumbbell & stand straight
Grab a dumbbell in your right hand and stand straight, with your feet slightly wider than shoulder-width apart.
Place hand on hip & lift dumbbell
Place your left hand on your hip to steady yourself, and raise the dumbbell to your waist.
Bend forward & twist torso
Keeping your back straight, bend forward and twist your torso to the left, guiding the dumbbell in your right hand down toward your left foot.
Return to position
Slowly raise your torso and pull the dumbbell up to the start position.
Repeat as needed—so the next time you'll be ready when you spot a quarter lying on the sidewalk.
