Stand up straight while holding a dumbbell on each shoulder, palms facing in.
Position your legs shoulder width apart with the toes slightly pointed out. Keep your head and chest up and back straight.
Begin to lower in to a squat by bending the knees as you maintain a straight posture with the head up. Continue down until your thighs are parallel to the floor. Be sure that your knees do no pass over the front of your toes.
Exhale as you push through the heels, straightening the legs and pushing the weights straight up overhead.
Reverse this motion to go back to the starting position.
