Special Offer

BACK KICK + SHOULDER PRESS
Stand on your left leg with your right leg off the ground, and your right knee pulled toward your chest. Hold a dumbbell against your chest with both hands, keeping your elbows tight against your rib cage. Slowly press your right heel straight outward, as if kicking someone behind you in the stomach. Simultaneously press the weight straight forward until your arms are fully extended. Your entire body should be parallel to the floor (except for your left leg). Hold for a beat, then retract your limbs back to starting position.
