Most Common Mistakes

1. Don’t ‘touch’ the dumbbells at the top. The movement should be slow and controlled.
2. Starting position make sure your hands aren’t leaning inward toward your head or outward past your elbow; they should be at an exact 90 degree angle with your elbows.
3. When lowering the dumbbells, make sure not too go far down. The elbows should only go slightly below the shoulders.
4. Your core should be stabilized. do not lean your chin forward or backward; make sure to keep a straight spine and head.
