Step-by-step instructions

1. Stand with feet wide and hold a dumbbell in one hand. Bend your hips back and then your knees. Explosively extend your hips and knees and pull the weight straight up in front of your body and “catch” it overhead. Trading out conventional deadlifts and shrugs for exercises like the one-arm dumbbell snatch will prevent your traps and neck from getting too thick.
