Kettle weight stability dips

Today we are going to be doing an exercise which is going to work on stability. This will help your balance. We’re going to work the little muscles in your leg and in your foot as well, because we are going to stand on one leg.

Your glutes will get a work out too, so it’s perfect for the core. When you do this exercise just make sure you tense your core and keep breathing.
