Set-up: Begin by holding two dumbbells in front of your chest with your palms facing your body, and your wrists in a line above your elbows. Set your feet to roughly shoulder width and brace your core.
Movement: Begin by moving your elbows to your sides, rotating outward and upward to press the dumbbells overhead. Continue the lift until the elbows are almost completely straight. Return to the start position reversing the movement.
Emphasis: Keep your core and back strong while maintaining natural spine position. While your legs, core and back should work to stabilize the movement, do not drive through the legs or use momentum to complete the lift.
