Single Leg Curl and Press
Why: challenge upper body movement and stability on lower leg What You Need: 10 pound weight or to your preference Starting position: • Stand with feet together, arms resting at sides, weight in right hand. Motion: • Elevate the right leg, lifting thigh to parallel with the floor and stacking knee directly over ankle. • Keeping right shoulder level and right bicep in line with side body, lift weight up in forward motion to shoulder height, then press up—extending right arm straight up at the ceiling. This motion creates a nice cross-action between the left hip and right shoulder. • Maintaining balance, repeat lifting weight four times. • With control, bring weight down first before returning right leg to standing. • Repeat on opposite side.
