Dumbbell Side Bend

Starting Position: Stand with feet shoulder width apart for balance. Grasp a dumbbell in one hand.

Performing The Exercise: Slowly lower the dumbbell until it is just below the knee, then reverse direction and bend to the other side until a stretch is felt in the dumbbell side. Slowly return to the starting position and repeat.

Tips: This exercise should be done in a controlled manner to avoid injury to the back and hip. A light weight should be used to start and never extend beyond a slight stretch to either side.
