Turn Mush to Muscle: Arm Extension with Leg Balance
Targets: Triceps, abs, and legs
Holding a dumbbell in left hand, arms by sides, stand on right leg with left knee bent so that left shin is nearly parallel to ground behind you. (MAKE IT EASIER: Stand with both feet on ground.)
- Bend left elbow to bring dumbbell in front of left shoulder.
- Slowly press dumbbell overhead, then bring it above head toward right. Next, bending left elbow, bring it by right shoulder, palm facing out to right side (as if tracing an arc over your head).
- Reverse movement, slowly lifting dumbbell up and over head to side and back down to left shoulder.
- Do 10 reps. Switch sides; repeat. Do 3 sets per side.
