One Arm Dumbbell Squat
The one arm dumbbell squat is a free weights exercise that primarily targets the glutes and to a lesser degree also targets the abs, hamstrings, shoulders and triceps.
You will need a weight such as a dumbbell or kettlebell to do this exercise, or you can use an alternative weight that you can find at home such as a filled plastic detergent container or milk carton etc.
Stand with feet at shoulder width and the weight positioned between your feet.
Squat and lift the weight with one hand.
Stand straight and then push the weight above your head as shown.
Keep you free arm out for balance.
Lower the weight back to chest height and then dip back into the squat while lowering the weight to the starting position.
