This exercise is a combination of 2 movements in one with a pause in the middle. It’s purpose serves to work the lower body as the lunging motion strengthens and tones the hips, thighs and buttocks. The balance portion is to stabilize the ankle, knee and hips joint.
The 1 arm shoulder press has a couple of functions. It will strengthen the shoulder, and because it is performed with only 1 arm at a time, it will stabilize and strengthen the opposite side of the core, specifically the oblique muscles.
The total combination provides a full body exercise for the legs, abs and shoulders that will improve your balance, stability, coordination and strength. This is considered an intermediate level exercise and makes a great addition to any fitness program.
