Pull your shoulders back, take a deep breath and brace through the middle. Begin the press with your elbows forward and drive the dumbbells straight up. Don’t let the elbows flare out while driving up. As you come to the top keep the dumbbells turned out and finish the lockout. The ribs should stay down, pelvis should be neutral and not arched forward or back and the arms fully locked out.
Return to the starting position by pulling the elbows down without dropping any of the stiffness through the midsection.
