How To Perform Exercise

Steps :

1.) To begin this exercise; start off by placing a dumbbell standing up on a flat bench.

2.) With the dumbbell standing up, lye your shoulders flat down upon the surface of the bench with your hips below and your legs bent so that your feet are firmly upon the floor.

3.) Take the dumbbell with both hands and lift it straight up over your chest as the palms rest on the underside of one of the sides of the dumbbell.

4.) Lower the weight down in an arc behind your head, stretching out your chest and hold for a few seconds.

5.) Return the dumbbell back to the starting position.

6.) Repeat this exercise for as many repetitions as needed.

Tips :

1.) Use a spotter if need be with heavier weights as there might be a struggle to return back up to the standing position.
