How do I do a turning lunge, balance to overhead press with alternate arms?

Stand with your feet pointed straight ahead and placed shoulder-width apart. Hold a pair of dumbbells, one in each hand, at your sides. Turn and lunge by opening up your hips, stepping back at a 45-degree angle and pivoting on your back foot. Stabilize with your front foot straight and flat, bend your knee 90-degrees and keep it directly over your second and third toes. Your opposite leg should be bent 90-degrees, with the heel of your back foot lifted off the ground. Push off the bent leg and return to a balance position. Next, press one dumbbell overhead, fully extending your arm. Return the dumbbell to your chest and repeat the exercise with the opposite arm.
