The executive branch is run by the President of the United States.
The president enforces laws and presents new ones, is in control of the Armed Forces, and has vetoing power. The power the judicial branch has is to analyze the Constitution and reviewing laws.
Another check the legislative branch can do if they really believe that this particular bill should become a law, is that they can override the president’s veto.
The bill gets sent back to the legislative branch and if two thirds of the group agrees, this will override the president’s veto and the bill becomes a law.
By dividing the United States government into three separate branches, it will take away the opportunity to have total power from any one of the groups.
The separation of powers also created a checks and balance system which will not allow one of the branches of government to have more power over another.
