Proper Exercise Technique

Stand in a 30 degree forward-leaning position with cervical and lumbar spine in neutral.

Keeping wrists neutral, raise elbows out to the sides of the body and then up to shoulder height.

Tip: It's important to keep your palms turned downward as you lift the dumbbells so that your shoulders, rather than your biceps, do the work.
