Start by having a dumbbell in each hand with your arm fully extended to the side using a neutral grip. Your feet should be shoulder width apart from each other. Now slowly lift the dumbbells up until you create a 90 degree angle with your arms. Note: Your forearms should be perpendicular to the floor. This the starting position.
Continue to maintain a neutral grip throughout the entire exercise. Slowly lift the dumbbells up until your arms are fully extended.
While inhaling lower the weights down until your arm is at a 90 degree angle again.
Repeat for the recommended amount of repetitions.
Variation: This exercise can be performed with a dumbbell in one arm and another holding on to an incline bench. This is another great way to add variety to your routines and keep them interesting.
