Type of exercise
- 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.
Contraindications Pre-exisitng shoulder or neck pathologies.
