Step by step instructions
Grab a dumbbell (8 to 20 pounds) with an overhand grip. Stand with your feet slightly wider than shoulder-width apart. Bend hips and knees to lower the weight to just in front of knee.
Explosively pull the dumbbell up skyward, keeping the weight as close to body as possible. Get your hips directly under a fully-extended arm in a semi-squat position. Finish the lift with arm and legs completely straight. Maintain gaze forward during the whole movement to help with balance.
