What is up my name is Antoine from C-Town, Ohio. The exercise we’re going to be doing today is single leg balance shoulder press. And the reason why, before we do that exercise that we’re going to do the single leg balance shoulder press is because we want to activate the core, as well as the leg. You’re going to start balance, press up making sure to extend through the hip, come down. Whenever you’re doing a shoulder press, you never want to break below a 90-degree bend in the elbow. Up, and back down, also working the triceps as well. So we have the triceps, shoulder and core working. The more muscles that you’re going to incorporate in the exercise, the more calories you can burn. You want to get five more. [Demonstration] Anytime with my clients that like to have more cores, turn around doing lap pull downs, that their knees aren’t under the pad or anything and this is a great example whenever you’re balancing yourself with one leg, you’re working your core. So always want to get core work and also you have many different muscles working, therefore you’re burning the maximum amount of calories that you can in one step. When you’re doing this exercise, you want to make sure to do anywhere between 12 to 15 reps, high intensity and you want to make sure to work both sides. My name is Antoine Dillard, that was the single leg shoulder balance press and I’m out.
