Technique of the Week: One Arm Dumbbell Press

The one arm dumbbell press is a rarely seen upper body exercise in most gyms. It’s typically left off most programs for exercises like bench presses and two-arm DB Press variations.

  Before I get into it, I’ll just say it, I cannot emphasize enough how valuable this one is for a better looking set of legs and butt, while also making you way more athletic. But see, I’ve got a little love/hate relationship going on with the Bulgarian Split Squat. Love? I credit it with saving…
