1. Begin with a dumbbell on your knees, taking the grip in both hands.
2. Lean back and lift the weight over your chest.
3. Hold the dumbbell with the weight plate on one side and let each thumb encircle the handle. Tip: For more emphasis on your lats, slightly bend your elbows (i.e. 15-30 degrees)
4. Lower the weight back until your arms are almost parallel to your torso and return to the starting position.
