Move Targets: Upper Back
Step 1: Stand with your feet under the hips and toes pointing forward. Hold the dumbbells in front of the thighs with the palms facing outward. Hinge at your hips until the butt goes behind the heels – keep your weight in the heels. Back is flat or slightly arched and chest is lifted.
Step 2: Exhale and send the arms out to the sides. Stop the weights at shoulder height. Remain in your hinged position. If you're swaying or rocking your body to get the weights up, the weight is too heavy. At the top of the move, squeeze the shoulder blades together.
