Move of the Moment: One-sided Flye



You all know how I love one-legged moves like the One Legged Deadlift and the One-Legged Ball Squat . But what about the upper body? Why should it miss out on the benefits of sngle leg (or arm) moves?


I saw this move on LATimes.com and I knew it would be a killer chest move. It works your chest and your core all at the same time! You will need a dumbbell and a weight.


1. Hold a dumbbell in your right hand and lie down on a full-length, foam roller with your head and hips supported on the roller. Straighten your right leg out in front of you and rest your left arm alongside your body with your hand close to your hips. Raise your right arm directly above your right shoulder, palm turned away from your face. Keep your abdominals pulled in but maintain the natural curves in your lower back and at the base of the neck.
2. Inhale, and slowly move your right arm out to the side and down to shoulder level. Focus your eyes up at the ceiling and concentrate on keeping your hips and shoulders motionless as you lower your arm. The tendency is to roll your hips off to the right, but if you contract your core muscles, you can keep your hips and shoulders level. Pause at the bottom, then reverse directions and return to the start position. Repeat 12 times, then perform this exercise on the other side.


Yowza! This is hard and you can feel it majorly the next day!
