How To Do It:

Stand tall while holding one 3-5 weight in each hand. Keep your arms straight down by your sides.

Engage your core.

Lift your left leg up to the side with your left foot facing forward.

Hold your left leg there for a count of two and then lower it slowly (not sloppily).

Do this 10 times on each side and repeat it at least 5 times throughout the day.

Remember that form is more important than the number of repetitions you do. Keep your core engaged throughout the exercise and lift and lower your leg deliberately rather than jerkily.
