Start: Stand with your feet shoulder-width apart. Hold a dumbbell in each hand alongside your body. Bend
your elbows 90 degrees, so that the weights are in front of and slightly beneath your chest.
Movement: Maintaining the L shape of your arms, raise your elbows out at your sides until your upper arms are parallel to the floor and your forearms point straight down. Keeping your elbows level with your shoulders and keeping your wrists in line with your forearms, rotate your upper arms to raise the dumbbells in an arc until they’re directly above your elbows. Reverse the movement and return to the starting position.
