How to perform exercise

- Sit on an incline bench that is angled at 45-degrees while holding a dumbbell on each hand.

Tip: You will keep this hand position throughout the movement as there should not be any twisting of the hands as they come up. This will be your starting position.

- As you inhale, slowly go back to the starting position.
