Hello PurFamily!

Here is a quick demonstration of one of my favorite exercises! I often incorporate this into my clients training programs, as this drill works the entire body in addition to challenging balance.
Here we have a lateral lunge, into a biceps curl to a single leg shoulder press. Sounds complicated but very simple once broken down step by step! Let’s get started!

Step 1

First, you want to stand shoulder width apart for your starting position.

Step 2

Secondly, while maintaining a long spine, step to the side while sitting into the moving leg (knee should align over the ankle). Many may feel a stretch in the hip/glute/thigh area.

Then, you will press off the leading leg back to standing position, transitioning to a single leg balance stance.

From there once you find the stability, flex from the elbow into a bicep curl and rotate up into a shoulder press making sure your arm is aligned along your ear.
