Standing with one foot slightly forward for stability, take the dumbbells up to level with your ears, for your start position. Raise the dumbbells up, bring them almost together, but don't let them touch. Keep your elbows out, head up. Come slowly down to level with your ears. The standing variation can make it easier to move straight into a superset, for example with lateral raises or Crazy 8s.
