Dumbbell Front Raise (Alternating)

Stand with knees slightly bent and feet no more than shoulder width apart. Stand in good body alignment (abs tight, chest up, back straight). Hold dumbbells (palms in) in front of legs, with elbows slightly bent. Squeeze together (retract) shoulder blades. In a controlled motion, raise one dumbbell up, keeping elbow fixed, until arm is parallel to the floor. Maintaining the controlled motion, return to starting position while raising the opposite arm parallel to the floor. Do not allow muscles to relax before next repetition.
