TARGETS

  • Side deltoids

Holding a dumbbell in each hand, stand with your feet parallel and shoulder width apart, your knees slightly bent and your pelvis slightly tucked. Your elbows should be slightly bent, your chest elevated, and your shoulders down and back away from your ears.

With palms facing in toward your body, push out about four inches away from the body with the back of your hands.

Slowly bring the dumbbells back to the starting position. Repeat.
