Rotate your wrists so that the palms of your hands are facing away from you. This is the start position.

As you exhale,  push the dumbbells up and over your head by extending your arms until the dumbbells touch at the top of the movement.

Pause for a count of one.

Slowly return to the start position inhaling as you do so.

Moving only your forearms, lower the dumbbell in a smooth arc behind your head until your forearms and biceps touch. Hold for a count of one.

Return to the start position by using the triceps to extend your arm and raise the dumbbell. Exhale as you do this.
