Dumbbell side lunge with single arm press



  1. Maintain good posture (ensure that the visual gaze is straight ahead) and good stability through the belly.
  2. Begin with a thorough dynamic warm up before starting this exercise. This engages the nervous system.


How to Do:

  1. This movement involves an alternating side lunge with a 1 arm shoulder press.
  2. Perform a side lunge (for description see 'lunge-frontal' in the exercise library), with the dumbbell at shoulder height.
  3. Hold in the lunge position and perform a shoulder press.
  4. Lower the weight back to shoulder height and push yourself back to the starting position.
  5. Alternate side lunging pattern.
  6. Perform the desired number of reps but NOTE that this exercise causes a lot of fatigue (you may choose a lower rep range to begin).
