(redirected from do you one better)

do (one) one better

To upstage, outshine, surpass someone or something. I know you feel productive today because you went running, but I did too, and I'll do you one better: I also went to the gym! I'm pretty sure I did one better than the rest of my classmates by including color pictures in my report.
