I never actually did squats and lunges in my workout routines years ago. I'm wanting to ease into strength training and incorporate these moves into my exercise program.
I do have very poor upper body strength. I'm working on that, but I have not seen to much progress as of yet. In fact, 5 pound dumbbells currently strain me and make me shake. I am really embarrassed by this and am upset I let myself get so week.
So I'm looking for advice on easing back into things. And I'm assuming I need to greatly increase my upper body strength before adding in squats?
