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.
