MOVEMENT: Pull the dumbbell to the side of your torso, keeping your elbow tucked close to your side. Do not rotate or lift your torso are you row the weight.


START: Stand holding a dumbbell just outside your shoulder, with your palm facing you. Set your feet shoulder-width apart and keep your knees slightly bent.

MOVEMENT: Raise the weight until your arm is completely straight, and then lower it to the starting position. Do 15 seconds of repetitions on one side, then switch and repeat with your other arm for 15 seconds.


START: Grab a dumbbell in your right hand and stand on your left foot with your knee slightly bent. Lift your right foot off the floor and bend your knee slightly.

MOVEMENT: Without changing the bend in your left knee, bend at your hips and lower your torso as you rotate it to the left and touch the dumbbell to your left foot. Pause, then raise your torso back to the starting position. Do 15 seconds of repetitions standing on your left foot, with the weight in your right hand. Then do 15 seconds of work on your right foot, with the weight in your left hand.
