(works shoulders, back, abs) Holding a 3- to 5-pound dumbbell in each hand (for extra toning if desired), stand with feet just beyond shoulder-width apart and parallel, knees bent and hips behind heels. Keeping torso straight (abs tight), bend forward and extend left arm forward and right arm back until both are parallel to ground, palms facing in (as shown). Hold for a count, then switch arms; repeat for two minutes. As you get more comfortable, shift weight to right foot when left arm is forward and to left foot when right arm is forward.
