Stand up straight with the dumbbells at about chin level with your palms facing each other and your forearms perpendicular to the floor.

Press the dumbbells up along a straight line toward the ceiling until your arms are fully extended.

The entire motion should be performed in a smooth, controlled manner that lasts about 3 seconds, with the downward movement no faster than the upward.

Do not lock your elbows at the top of the movement and do not bounce at the bottom of the movement.
