- Take a dumbbell in your hand. Lower your hand down. Your hands should be relaxed with a slight bend at the elbows. The back is straight. Put an opposite hand on the waist. This will be your starting position.
- Trying to fully use the shoulder muscles, lift the dumbbell at the chest level as you exhale. Make sure that your elbows drive the motion.
- Inhaling, lower the dumbbell down to the starting position.
Precautions: Be very careful with how much weight you use, as long as incorrect performance leads to asymmetrical muscles growth. Moreover, there is a possibility to injury the shoulder joint. Try to perform this exercise without jerks and abrupt movements.
