Stand with feet slightly apart, back straight, arms hanging at your sides. Hold a dumbbell in each hand, palms facing inward.
EXHALE: Raise the dumbbells at your sides to shoulder level, keeping elbows slightly bent.
INHALE: Lower slowly with control to the starting position to complete one rep.
Do not let the momentum of your swinging arms do all the work-- keep the movement controlled. Be sure you are not leaning back when lifting the weights.
