Hit your upper back muscles and your core with this move. If it's too challenging to keep your arms straight, Ashley recommended bending them at the elbows.
- Holding a dumbbell in each hand, stand with knees slightly bent. Keeping your back flat, bend forward at the hip joint.
- Exhale and lift both arms to the side, maintaining a slight bend in the elbows and squeezing your shoulder blades together. Then with control, lower the dumbbells back toward the ground.
- This counts as one rep. Complete 12 reps.
