Instructions: Grab a set of dumbbells and sit on the edge of a flat bench. Rest the dumbbells on their
ends on the tops of your knees. Lean back and at the same time lift the dumbbells up towards
your shoulders and lean back into the bench. Lift the weights up till your arms are straight.
Rotate your wrists and arms until your palms are facing each other. This is your starting
position. Next, keeping your elbows slightly bent, lower the weights as far as you can go comfortably
out away from your sides.
Slowly, push the weights back up to the stating position. Repeat for the number of reps assigned.
Note Be careful in this movement. Over stretching can
cause injuries to your shoulders.
Don't jerk the weight up. Use a slow controlled movement. Don't let the weights travel too far out
from your sides making your arms extend out straight, or you might injure your shoulders. Don't bang the weights together at the top of the movement. This
can cause stress to your joints.
