One-legged deadlift with leg extension and overhead press

Works every muscle while helping your balance and stability.

Stand with feet hip-width apart, a dumbbell in each hand. (Ali uses 5 to 8 pounds, but start with less.) Shift weight to right foot and hinge forward as you raise left leg behind you so that body forms a T, keeping back straight and weights close to legs (A). Return to upright position, but keep left foot off floor. Bend knee and lift left leg to hip-level while bending elbows and pulling weights in to sides (B). Extend left leg straight out in front as you push weights overhead (C). Return to start. Do 10 to 15 reps per side.
