- Lower the dumbbells by exhale along a trajectory that resembles a semicircle – down and inward towards the chest. In this case, the arms from the shoulder to the elbow should remain as possible in the same plane. At the bottom of the dumbbell almost touch the upper chest.
- On the same trajectory on exhalation dumbbells rise upwards. Lifting should occur due to the maximum tension of the triceps. At the top point, the dumbbells again come together, you can stay for a couple of seconds, then the dumbbells again go down to the lowest point. Carry out the required number of repetitions.
Throughout the amplitude, perform movements smoothly and under control. Do not move your shoulders and do not put dumbbells on your chest at the bottom point.
