Plea Squat with Alternating Shoulder Press Exercise Hi my name is Chris and I'm from Houston Texas. Now this exercise that I'm going to be taking you through right now is a plea squat to a unilateral alternating arm shoulder press. So grab your dumbbells, you want to stand with your feet a little bit more than hip with the part, put your feet turned out at a 45-degree angle. Make sure that your knees go directly over the toes, like over the second and third toe. Don’t let the knees go all the way out over the toes so when you sit back into the squat push your butt back, okay? So hands up at your shoulders, you’re going to squat down, press, alternate up, down, up. Make sure that as you’re coming up, you push through the heels. I think you should train the entire being -- mind, body and soul. Make the full connection between everything. The best way to do that is to do combinations and to incorporate all different types of body movements and muscle groups then everything together to get your mind thinking as well as your body working. You’re going to want to do ten on this side, and then to add a little bit more of the challenge both mentally and physically switch arms. So you’re going to be down here, and then up. Switch, up, up, then on that side. I recommend that you do this three times through. The plea squat is working the blues -- the legs, the core and the shoulders all at once. So it’s another good one that incorporates everything so you’ve got to use the mental connection with the visible connection. That was the plea squat to a unilateral, alternating arm-shoulder press. You want to do that three times through. Thank, my name is Chris. Thank you for watching Studio for Fitness.
