Step 1

Holding a dumbbell in each hand with a neutral grip (palms facing inwards) plant both feet on the floor slightly further than shoulder-width apart. Bring the dumbbells to shoulder height and point your elbows forward. This is your starting position.

Step 2

Inhale. Bend your hips and knees slightly. Exhale. Extend your hips and knees, at the same time use the muscles in your shoulders and arms to extend your elbows to press the dumbbells directly above your head. Your arms should be in line with your ears on either side of your head.

Step 3

Inhale. Bend your elbows to lower the dumbbells into the starting position. Repeat for the specified number of repetitions.
