- Sit on a chair or the end of a bench.
- Place a light dumbbell in each hand and lean over your thighs. Don't collapse onto your legs, but keep your chest about six inches from your quads. Try to straighten your spine and engage your abs.
- Now at the same time, lift both arms up, drawing your elbows back and squeezing your shoulder blades together. Then with control, lower the dumbbells back toward the ground.
- Do three sets of 12 to 15 reps.
