  • Hold a dumbbell with an overhand grip (palms facing down) about 6-8 inches apart, with your hands slightly over your knees.
  • The top-side of your forearms should be resting on your thighs.
  • Keeping your arms stationary, curl the dumbbell up (at wrists) towards your body as far as possible.
