The Single Arm High Pull is a fabulous exercise that coordinates the lower and the upper body, as well as the core. Perform this using a kettlebell or a dumbbell. Squat down and then drive the elbow up as you come up. It should be a coordinated effort between the lower body and the upper body. To further increase the difficulty of this exercise, add a ballistic hip thrust, driving up through the hips that lift the kettlebell up. You're barely using any upper body with this variation. It's all hips. A fantastic way to strengthen the lower body and coordinate the core into the picture.
