Why do it?The single-leg overhead press is a deltoid, core and balance exercise in one. Doing any exercise on one leg creates an unstable environment that will challenge your core to keep you in position while manipulating light weights. Pay close attention to the "counts" in each step to increase the stabilizing effect.
How to do it:
Step 1: Stand on one leg with a light dumbbell in each hand at shoulder height with your palms facing forward. Bend your standing leg slightly, and pull in your abs.
Step 2: Press your arms overhead as you exhale (1 count). Bring the weights all the way up and together, but do not lock your elbows.
Step 3: Hold the press for (2 counts) while continuing to squeeze your core.
Step 4: Inhale and lower your arms all the way down to armpit height, but do not touch your body to rest (4 counts).
Step 5: Repeat, changing your standing leg halfway through your set.
