INSTRUCTIONS

Prep

Grab a pair of dumbbells with appropriate weight and lie down on an incline bench, facing down.

Start

Face the dumbbells towards each other and lock in your legs while keeping your arms extended with a slight bend in the elbow.

Movement

Lift the weights while keeping the arms slightly bent to fully isolate the the shoulders by squeezing in your shoulder blades. Lift the dumbbells all the way to side of your body.

Slowly bring the dumbbells down to the starting position.

End

Once completing your set, re-rack the weights as needed or wipe down the equipment used.

TIPS

Use lower weights when you begin. This is an exercise that requires lots of isolated strength to prevent swinging and tossing the weights up and down! Controlled form and movement is critical to this exercise.

With isolated exercises, this is most effective with moderate to high repetitions with controlled movements.

You can perform this movement using a machine which will simplify your movement while not taxing the remainder of the body.
