Correct Execution

  • guide the weights simultaneously in direction to the shoulders without momentum
  • your upper arms and elbows do not move
  • if you reach the upper slot, hold it for a short moment and turn your hands until the palms are pointed forwards
  • let the weights sink down again
  • always keep the arms bent a little
  • turn your hands back into the starting position (palms point forwards) and repeat the exercise

tip for the workout
