1. Start with your feet hip-distance apart, both arms resting at your sides and holding a 3 lb to 5 lb weight in your right hand. Shift 90 percent of your weight onto your right leg and slide your left leg directly back about one foot, bending your left knee and resting your toe lightly on the floor.
2. Exhale and raise your arm up on a diagonal (about 4-5 inches in front of you) to shoulder height. Pause and lower arm back down by your side. Repeat for 10 to 12 repetitions; switch sides. Complete 2 to 3 sets on both sides.
