Multitasking Move: Balancing Row

Here's a variation to the Tipping Row, which strengthens the backs of your arms and your upper back. Since you're balancing on one leg and extending the other, you'll also tone your quads, booty, and back.

Grab a pair of dumbbells and learn how to do this exercise..

  • Stand with your feet together and a dumbbell in each hand. Extend your right leg out behind you and your torso tips forward, so your leg and body are parallel with the ground. Engage your abs to protect your lower back. Hold the weights below your shoulders with your arms extended. Your left knee should be slightly bent. Inhale to prepare.
  • As you exhale, bend your elbows up above your back, bringing the weights to your chest, just like the bent-over row.
  • Inhale and return your arms to starting position, staying balanced on your left leg, with your right leg extended.
  • Do three sets of 10 to 12 reps on each side.
