Sunset on the dumbbell bench

Sunset on the bench with dumbbells – technique of the exercise:

  1. Stand straight, holding a dumbbell in both hands. The palms are facing inwards. Before you should be a small platform or a horizontal bench. This will be your starting position.
  2. Put your right foot on the bench. Rise to the bench, transferring the weight of the body to the foot, while exhaling, exhale.
  3. On inhalation, step back slowly with your left foot, dropping to the floor. Attach the right leg, returning to the starting position.
  4. Repeat with the right foot the required number of repetitions, then do the exercise with your left foot.

Hint: this exercise is an alternative to deadlift with direct legs for those people who can not perform traction because of problems with the lower back.

Variations: like attacks, this exercise can be performed alternately, then right, then left foot. You can also use a barbell. Beginners can perform an exercise without a bar, using only their own weight.
