Part 1, Exercise 1: Lateral Raise
- Stand with your feet hip-distance apart. Hold a dumbbell in each hand so your palms face in toward the sides of your body.
- With control, keep your arm straight (but don't lock that elbow), and as you inhale, raise both hands up toward the ceiling. You want your palms to be facing down and your arms to be parallel to the floor. Then, as you exhale, slowly lower your hands back to your body. You should be able to see your hands in your peripheral vision, so your arms won't be directly out to the side, but slightly forward.
- Do the same move with your left arm.
- Complete 10 reps.
