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.

Read the narrative:
So stand on your right foot holding an 8 kg kettle bell in your left hand. You can go heavier if you like!
Lean forwards with the kettle bell and at the same time lift your right leg up behind you. Then return to standing position and repeat going down and up.
Make sure you tense your glute on the leg you are standing on.
Make sure when you are going down you don’t drop your head, just look straight forwards with good posture and tense your core.
Repeat ten times. It might be really hard to start with but it will get easier with practice.
