Setup instructions

1) Stand tall with a slight bend in the knees. Keep the chest up, core and glutes tight.

Perform instructions

1) Bend your elbow and slowly lift the weight towards your shoulder. As you do this, twist your arm so the palm faces up.

2) Pause for a second as you squeeze the bicep at the top of the movement.
