Side Lateral Deltoid Lift with Leg in Rotational Balance

Side Lateral Deltoid Lift with Leg in Rotational Balance

Move: Stand with feet hip distance apart, holding light weights. Lift your right leg and cross it over your left leg. Look toward your right to counter-rotate your torso—lift your spine long as you twist. Lift the weights to shoulder height, squeeze your shoulder blades together, and then lower the weights.

Repetitions: 15 repetitions on each side.

Tips:

• Keep your shoulders down and your shoulder blades together throughout the exercise. Keep your chest open and maintain good posture.

• If the balance aspect is difficult, try tapping your toe on the floor rather than holding it in the air.

• If you feel any discomfort in the shoulders, try turning your palms slightly up.
