Starting Position: Hold a pair of dumbbells while standing, with each one hanging in the front of you by your waist, palms facing in. Keep your feet shoulder width apart.
Performing the Exercise: Keep your arms straight with a slight bend as you lift your right arm upward upward until the weight is a little above shoulder level. Slowly lower the weight back to your side as you begin to lift your left arm up. Your palms should be facing the ground as you reach shoulder height.
What not to do
- Do not swing the weight up!
- Keep your palms in the same position as you move the weight up and down
- Keep your back straight, with no leaning forward
- Keep your arms straight
- These can also be done lifting both dumbbells at the same time
