Choose the appropriate weight matching your fitness level. Take a shoulder-width stance and squat to grab the dumbbells using an overhand grip. Let your hands hang loosely down and do not rotate your wrists.
Fromthe starting position, straighten your body core and lift the dumbbells up towards your armpits with your elbows pointing out. Thenslowly return to the starting position. Do the required number of repetitions, inhaling in the starting position and exhaling in the upper position.
Make sure you keep the correct body posture with a firm body core and no bending backwards. Do not involve your upper trapezius muscles. Return to the starting position using a slow, controlled motion and avoid sudden relaxation of your muscle tension.
Exercise in front of a mirror to check for use of the correct technique.
