Repeat until you’ve completed your desired reps and don’t forgot to lock the safety pins once you are done.
Performing the lunges: Stand straight with the feet shoulder width apart. Grab a dumbbell in each hand. Step forward with one leg and flex the knee so your hips can go down. Lower your body until the rear knee touches the ground. Drive yourself up with your leading leg (and extend your knees at the same time).
