Single-Leg Dumbbell Curl-to-Press
Balance on one leg, holding dumbbells at sides with palms facing forward
Curl dumbbells to shoulders, then press them straight overhead as you rotate palms to face out
Slowly lower dumbbells to start position through same movement pattern
Repeat for specified reps
Sets/Reps: 3x4-6-8 [switch legs halfway through each set]
Coaching Points: Keep balancing knee slightly bent // Don’t swing dumbbells // Don’t overarch back during press
Daub: This is great for single-leg proprioception and balance. It is a combo lift because it’s a Bicep Curl associated with a Shoulder Press. Combo exercises allow us to get our training done in less time and also to put Kevin in a position where he has to stabilize with his core to go through the different movements.
Basic Dumbbell Overhead Press
Perform Press with dumbbells while standing on both feet
Stein: This strengthens the shoulders and core. I prefer to use the standing position to involve all of the body’s stabilizing muscles.
