Action

EXHALE: Bend at the elbow to curl your hands towards your shoulders.

INHALE: Slowly straighten the elbow to return to start position to complete one rep.

Special Instructions

Make sure your elbows do not lock when you are in the start position. Do not lean back or arch your back when lifting--keep your back straight.
