Lay flat on a bench with a dumbbell in each hand. Slowly bring the dumbbells down towards your chest till you feel a good stretch keeping your palms facing away from you. Your elbows should be about 45 degrees out from your torso.
Sit down on a bench and place your hands next to your hips, extend your legs, lifting your bottom off the bench with your arms extended, hinge at the elbow and lower your body down as far as you can or until your arms form a 90-degree angle. Make sure your elbows are going straight back and not off to the side to make sure you are pushing up with your triceps properly.
Alternating Shoulder Press
Press both dumbbells up above your head bringing down one at a time and back up above your head alternating arms each rep.
Bent Over Row
Start by standing with you feet close together, bent over at a 45 degree angle with a slight bend in your knees. Holding a dumbbell in each hand with your palms facing your body, set your shoulders back in aline with your chest. It’s important to keep your back straight and you chin tucked down towards your chest to avoid arching your lower back. Pull the dumbbells up slight back towards your hips and squeeze your back. Return back down very slow and controlled, you lead the dumbbells don’t let them pull you.

At the top of the curl you are going to press the dumbbells up above your head till your arms are stright then return back down the in the same pattern and repeat. Make sure your palms are facing each other the whole time and that your core is tight. You should not be swinging the dumbbells up into each curl it should be slow and controlled.
