Stand with your feet parallel about hip-width apart while holding dumbbells in your hands with palms facing inwards. Bend your knees slightly. Bring your torso forward by bending at the waist, keeping your back straight until it is almost parallel to the floor.
The dumbbells should hang directly in front of you as your arms hang perpendicular to the floor and your torso. This is your starting position.
While keeping the torso straight, exhale and lift the dumbbells to your side, keeping your elbows close to your body.
Inhale and slowly lower the dumbbells to the starting position.
WARNING: This exercise is not recommended for people with back problems!
