You Will Need
- A padded weight bench
Sit on bench & hold dumbbells
Sit on the edge of the bench with your feet about shoulder width apart. Hold a dumbbell in each hand at shoulder height, palms facing each other, elbows underneath palms.
Slowly lower the dumbbells back down.
Repeat until you can't maintain proper form—either your back starts to weaken or you can't raise the dumbbells all the way even with a spotter's aid.
Keeping your back straight, smoothly lift the dumbbells straight up until your arms are straight but not locked out.
