Step-by-step instructions

1. Lie on the floor with a dumbbell in each hand, wrists facing your shoulders. Hold the weights just a few inches over your chest.
2. Extend your arms, while rotating your wrists away from your shoulders, to press the dumbbells up towards the ceiling. Take a short pause, then lower them back to the starting position. That's one rep.
