Exercise Advice: Stand with your legs about shoulder width apart and hold a dumbbell in each hand with your palms facing in toward your body. Allow the dumbbells to hang at your sides so that your arms are fully extended. To execute this movement, simply shrug your shoulders while keeping your arms completely straight. Be sure that you hold your shoulders in the shrug position for a one-count at the top of the movement. Return to the start position and repeat for the desired amount of repetitions.
