Here are a couple of exersices for the full body workouts:
( check out for more exercises)
Set Up: Standing upright with dumbbells at your side, step forward with your left leg into a lunge position (1). Be sure not to let your back knee touch the floor.
Action: From the lunge, transition into a standing posture by moving your right leg forward, placing your weight on your left leg. Simultaneously, curl the dumbbells up to your shoulders and (2) press them over your head while bringing your extended right leg in front of you. Repeat from the start (standing) position. Alternatively, you can try walking lunges.

Set Up: Stand on your left leg (right leg lifted off the ground with knee bent) and a dumbbell in your right hand held up at your side, in a hammer curl position (1).
Action: Move your right leg posteriorly as you bring your torso down and forward. Continue until your right leg and torso are on the same horizontal plane, almost parallel to the ground (2). Holding thisposition, pull the weight in your right hand up towards your torso, bringing your elbow as high as you can (not shown). Return to the starting position by reversing the movement. Repeat, then switch sides.
