Muscle up Monday- Lateral Walks with a weight.

I love introducing this one to my clients- they all look at me like "wow that looks easy" and then as they do about 8-10 it starts to burn!

Fairly simple exercise:
1.  Grab a weight (or no weight for beginner) in both hands.  Hold the weight to your chest.  (Alternatively- if you have bands as shown in the picture, feel free to use those, rather than holding a weight).
2.  Bend the knees into a semi squat position.  Keep the tummy tight, chest up.
3.  Without allowing your weight to come up, take large steps laterally (about 10-12).
4.  At the other end stand up straight, stretch the legs, and return!
