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!
First, you want to stand shoulder width apart for your starting position.
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.
Step 3 + 4
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.
Repeat this exercise 8-10 times on each side with light to moderate weight and witness a full body blast!
