Setup: Grab two 8-pound FitFighters and hold one in each hand. Stand up straight and lift one leg and balance.

Action: Raise your arms and push your hip back to the platform. Keep one foot up as you stretch your arms over your head. Afterward, roll back up with your arms extended and lift yourself from the platform. Remember to keep only one foot planted on the ground at all times. The difficulty of the exercise can be adjusted with the height of the platform. The higher the platform is, the less range of motion you have to do. Repeat for eight to 12 reps each side.
