Grasp a pair of dumbbells and stand upright with your feet shoulder – width apart as you hold the dumbbells at sides with neutral grip (palms facing your body). Than raise the dumbbells up to shoulder height with your arms and forearms creating a 90 – degree angle and twist your wrists so that your palms are facing forward. This will be your starting position.
