  1. Bend over a bench with a split stance. One arm should be resting on the bench fully extended, legs should be slightly bent to allow for the back to be straight.
  2. With the free arm, hold a dumbbell with a neutral grip, palms facing in towards the body.
  3. Bring the dumbbell up towards the ribs so that the arm is now in a 90 degree angle. This is the starting position.
  4. Lock your elbow into your side, fire the dumbbell backwards so the arm fully extends.
