  • Take one arm and raise the elbow to bring the dumbbell up, parallel with the shoulder.
  • As you lower that arm, take the opposite arm and do the same thing.

 Tricep Extensions

  • While either standing or sitting down, take one dumbbell and hold it in both hands.
  • Take the dumbbell and slowly lift it up above your head.
  • Then slowly bend your elbows back and lower the dumbbell behind your head, keeping your elbows in. Raise the dumbbell back up for one rep.
  • Make sure not to arch your back or tilt your head to prevent injury.
