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.
• 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 diffi cult, try tapping your toe on the fl oor rather than holding it in the air.
• If you feel any discomfort in the shoulders, try turning your palms slightly up.
