Coach Rebecca demonstrates the Exercise of the Week. Discus-thrower. Targets glutes, quads, obliques, transverse abs, medial and posterior delts. 10-20 reps per side. Stand with one foot in front of you. Hold a dumbbell in the hand opposite your outstretched leg and squat, twisting your body so that you are holding the db on the outside of the opposite knee, palm facing inward. Stand up while twisting your body and raising the db. Lead with the elbow of the arm holding the db, rotating so your hand is the highest part of your body. Return to start position. This is one rep.
