- Begin standing holding a dumbbell in each hand with a neutral grip (palms facing inwards), plant both feet on the floor shoulder-width apart. While maintaining a slight bend in your knees, hinge forward from your hips so that your torso is parallel to the floor. Bend your elbows so they are at 90 degrees and in line with your torso. This is your starting position.
- Inhale and brace your core. With your left arm fixed, exhale as you straighten your right arm to slowly lower the dumbbell below you.
- Inhale as you draw your right elbow to your hip to pull the dumbbell back into your side and return to the starting position. You should feel a small squeeze between your shoulder blades. Complete the same with your left arm. Alternate between sides for the specified number of repetitions or time.
