Dumbbell

Description

How to do dumbbell push jerk:

 

- Stand with legs a bit wider than your shoulders' width.

- Hold one dumbbell in each hand with elbows bent and weights at your shoulders, palms facing inward.

- From the starting position, sit into a slight squat, pressing your hips behind you.

- As you come up out of the squat, do a power "jerk" press, pushing the dumbbells all the way up until your arms are extended straight upward.

- Pause here and slowly bend your elbows to lower back down to the starting position.
