- Lie flat back on a bench with feet firmly planted in the floor.
- Hold a dumbbell in each hand with a neutral grip, palms facing toward each other. Bring hands together at the chest and raise straight up. This is the starting position.
- Lower the dumbbells out towards the side of the body, keeping a slight bend in the elbow. Try to get slightly lower than chest level is possible. Palms should be facing the sky by the end of the movement.
- Once you’ve reached the lowest part of rut movement, squeeze the chest and slowly bring the dumbbells back together again.
