How to do it:

  • Grasp a dumbbell in each hand with a grip that is slightly less than shoulder width.
  • The dumbbells should be resting on top of your thighs. Your arms should be extended with a slight bend at the elbows and your back should be straight.
  • This will be your starting position. Use your side shoulders to lift the dumbbells.
  • The dumbbells should be close to the body as you move it up and the elbows should drive the motion.
  • Continue to lift them until they nearly touch your chin.
  • Tip: Your elbows should drive the motion. As you lift the dumbbells, your elbows should always be higher than your forearms.
  • Also, keep your torso stationary and pause for a second at the top of the movement.
  • Lower the dumbbells back down slowly to the starting position.
