Lift the dumbbells up to your chest level and relax by lowering your hands down to the normal position. One important point to be remembered while performing an upright row is that there should be no movement in the abdominal area while lifting or releasing the weights.
Your arms should ache after performing 12 uprights and this is the major indication that you are lifting the appropriate weights according to your arm strength and body weight.
