1) Place one foot in front of the other for balance and stability.
2) Lean forward slightly. While holding your weights with wrists straight, begin with your arms wide and rounded and elbows slightly bent.
3) Tightly controlling your arms, pull your arms toward one another, crossing them in front.
4) Do 2 sets of 8-12 repetitions, alternating which arm moves in front of the other. Build to 4 sets.
Variation: Increase the poundage of your weights, building to 5-pound or even 10-pound weights.
