Setup instructions

1) Start by lying on your back and plant the feet on the floor.

Perform instructions

1) Slowly lower the weights in an arc-like motion away from the body. Have a bend in the elbows as you lower them down.

2) As you reach half way, twist your forearms so the palms face each other. The endpoint should be the hands and chest fully aligned.
