How to

Starting Position

1. Stand with your feet shoulder-width apart, your core engaged, and a pair of light dumbbells in each hand, resting just in front of your thighs. 2. Pull your shoulder blades back and down, and keep your arms straight. 3. Keep your gaze forward and your chest open.

Proper Form

1. Lift the dumbbells out and away from your body, keeping your arms straight and your shoulder blades back and down. 2. Lift the dumbbells up and out to the sides until they are in line with your shoulders. 3. Hold for a second, then slowly lower the dumbbells back to the starting position.

Breathing Technique

1. Breathe in as you lift the dumbbells up and out to the sides. 2. Breathe out as you slowly lower the dumbbells back to the starting position.

Precautions

1. Make sure to keep your core engaged and your shoulder blades back and down throughout the entire movement. 2. Avoid arching your back or hunching your shoulders. 3. Don't lift the dumbbells too high, and keep your arms straight the entire time.
