Home Workout: Band Overhead Press and Lunge Complex

Here's another great extra workout or additional complex to add to your longer workouts that doesn't take up much space or time.

Band Overhead Press + Lunge Complex
1. Some Band Overhead Press Variation (From front of body OR alternating press from in front and behind your head)
2. Some Lunge Variation (Reverse Lunge OR Alternating Forward and Reverse Lunge)

Can be performed in your living room, outside, or in a gym.  No Equipment, No Excuses.

Choose one of the variations from the videos below.

Next, choose a sets, reps or time progression.
Beginner : 10 reps each exercise. Rest. Repeat 5 times. (Totaling 50 reps per exercise)
Intermediate: 20 reps each exercise. Rest. Repeat 5 times. (Totaling 100 reps per exercise)
Advanced: Set 8-10 minutes on the clock. Perform as many 20 rep sets of each exercise in 7 minutes. Rest as needed. Try to beat your total reps each time you perform the complex.

Too easy? Add a weight vest.

In the videos below I'm using a "Light"(Large) Band.
Males may want to start with a "Light"(Large) or "Average"(X-Large) Band.
Females may want to start with a "Mini"(Small) or "Monster Mini"(Medium) Band.
