Side Bend Should Press.

Posted on 22. Jan, 2012 by in Exercises

This exercise is great because it works multiple muscles in one exercise.  I love these types of workouts!


Works abs/core, oblique and shoulders. You need (2) 8 lbs. weights or heavier.

– Stand with feet slightly wider than shoulder-width apart, dumbbell in right hand by side, and bring left hand to touch back of head, elbow bent out to side.

– Hinge at waist to side bend to right, reaching dumbbell along outside of right leg toward knee. (Do not allow torso to tip forward.)



– Return to upright posture, raising dumbbell to right shoulder and then pressing it overhead, palm facing left.

– Lower dumbbell to shoulder; return to start.

– Do 30 reps. Switch sides and repeat. Do 3 sets.
