Starting PositionExecution

Starting Position

  • grasp a dumbbell with one hand
  • hold it next to your thigh
  • the palm of the hand points to the thigh
  • the feet are shoulder width apart, bend your knees a little
  • you can hold up to something with the opposite arm to stabilize your body

Correct Execution

  • guide the dumbbell up by lifting your arm
  • keep the elbow bent a bit
  • the movement only happens in the shoulder
  • avoid swinging with your body
  • hold the weight up for two seconds, then let it sink down again slowly
  • repeat the exercise several times, do not forget the other arm

tips for the workout

  1. if you turn the thumbs downwards a little (as if you pour something out of a bottle), you can require the deltoid a little more
  2. if you want to train the upper chest and the front part of the deltoid, bring the weights up above your head
