I love this exercise for my whole body–upper, lower, core and heart!! I have been working my way up on the weights to where I’m holding 12-15 pounds each hand. I literally die on this and am sore the next day (or two!)
Here is a video demonstration of “The Surrender”! (I’m fighting a cold and am having problems breathing hence the breathlessness!)
Do 2-3 sets of 8- 10 stands EACH LEG. Use weights heavy enough to make it hard to stand towards the last 2 reps!
