Type of exercise

How to

  • Begin by front racking a dumbbell or kettlebell with one arm.
  • With a neutral spine and stiff core, press the weight overhead so your upper arm is in line with your ear.
  • Once the weight is pressed overhead and you are stable, walk forward while maintaining the shoulder and upper back in a stable position.
  • Repeat on both sides for desired sets and distance.


The waiter's walk is useful for building shoulder stability while integrating core stability and function from hip to shoulder.
