Stand straight holing a dumbbell in each hand with a neutral grip.
Keep your arms fully extended with your palms facing in to your sides.
Keep your elbows tucked in to your sides. This is the start position.
Keeping your upper arm stationary, exhale and curl the dumbbells up towards your shoulders.
Continue raising the dumbbells until your biceps are fully contracted and the dumbbells are at shoulder level.
Hold for a count of one and squeeze your biceps.
Return to the start position in a smooth movement, inhaling as you do so.
