Then you are going to pull the dumbbells up back towards your hips and squeeze your back. Bringing the dumbbells back down repeat the movements.
Tricep Push Ups

It’s important to keep your core tight to prevent your lower back from arcing. Also make sure you are not swinging the dumbbell up with each curl, this exercise should be slow and controlled.
