One of my favourite full-body exercise is the Squat Press-Up. This is a great exercise that can be done at home with only needing a pair of dumbbells.

How do you do this exercise:
  • You start-off by grabbing a set of dumbbells starting with a comfortable weight with your feet shoulder width apart.
  • Bring the weights onto your shoulders as you squat down.
  • As you rise up, push up the dumbbells above you.
  • Repeat the motion by bringing the dumbbells back to your shoulders as you squat.

For starters, start off with a comfortable weight and slowly increase as you build more body strength. I recommend that even for women to use heavy weights for this exercise. Don't worry about building muscles because women doesn't. Unless you inject yourself with lots of testosterone (hormone that builds muscle) or you workout with heavy weights few hours a day.

This exercise involves your large lower body muscles groups (quads, hamstrings and glutes) and also you upper muscle groups (shoulders, arms, chest and upper back). Not forgetting our core muscle, abs, that keeps us stabilize.

As you can see with such a simple full body exercise, you are able to work your whole body and pushing your muscles to the limit at the same time. This will cause your body to burn more fats and build more lean muscles. Full body exercise also boost your metabolism which is also your fat burning tool in your body.

Isolated exercises will never give you this results since one muscle group is being worked at a given time. So try this Squat Press-up exercise and notice the difference.
