Learn how to do the dumbbell reach for a female leg workout from personal trainer Erin Sharoni in this Howcast workout video.


Hey, my name is Erin and I'm a former U.S. Junior Olympic-certified swim coach and personal trainer and fitness is my passion, so I cannot wait to share it with you guys.

Okay, another move, it's a little bit more advanced. Take your time with it. It's not so much about how many reps you do. It's about being slow and controlled, really working on your balance and maintaining that tight core.

Okay, so you're going to start on one leg. Place your dumbbell in front of you, so your dumbbell goes in front of the leg that you're lifting. Arm up, and you're just going to hinge forward from the hip. Extend the raised leg out behind you. Pick up your dumbbell and with a straight arm you're going to lift it up. So this should be burning right now. Okay?

Again, come back down and back to center and you're just going to switch sides, move over, and do it on the other leg. So, again, that one is not so much about how many reps you do. It's not so much about building muscle. It's really slow, controlled, and focused. It really, really is going to work your core and also as an added bonus, It's good for the glutes.
