Step 1

Holding a dumbbell in each hand in a neutral grip (palms facing inwards) and arms extended by your sides, plant both feet on the floor shoulder-width apart. This is your starting position.

Step 2

Inhale. Exhale. While maintaining a slight bend in your elbows, raise the dumbbells outwards and upwards to shoulder height, ensuring that you draw your shoulder blades down and back.

Step 3

Inhale. Lower the dumbbells to return to the starting position. Repeat for the specified number of repetitions.
