Setup instructions

1) Lie on your back and plant the feet on the floor - knees point up.

2) Lift your triceps up towards the ceiling so they're vertical to the floor. Throughout the entire exercise, keep the triceps in place. Bend the elbows so you have a 90 degree angle - they should be near parallel to the ground.

Perform instructions

1) Slowly extend your arms and push the dumbbells towards the ceiling.

2) Pause at the top and squeeze the triceps. Now, gently lower back to the starting position.

3) Repeat.
