The dumbbell exercises in this complex are performed unilaterally. In other words, you’ll use a single dumbbell and perform all reps holding the dumbbell in your left hand, and then perform the reps again with the dumbbell in your right hand.
Anytime you perform unilateral dumbbell exercises, it lights up your core muscles to maintain control (create stability) and offset the unbalanced load.
Start the dumbbell exercises using the same side hand each time.
