- Lie back on an inclined bench and place a dumbbell on top of each thigh. Your hands will be together with the palms facing inward.
- Next, raise each dumbbell one at a time until you can hold them at shoulder width while using your thighs to help push them higher.
- When the dumbbells are at shoulder height, rotate your wrists forward so that your hands’ palms are facing away from you. This will be where you start.
- Ensure that you always maintain complete control of the dumbbells. After that, exhale and raise the dumbbells with your chest.
- Start carefully reducing the weight after locking your arms at the top and holding for a brief period of time
- Tip: The weights should be raised and lowered in roughly equal amounts of time.
- Carry out the movement the recommended number of times.
- After you’re done, put the dumbbells back on the floor and then your thighs. The safest way to release the dumbbells is in this position.
Variations: If the bench you’re using is adjustable, you can use a variety of angles on the inclined bench.
