Tips

Be sure to completely finish the rep and squeeze your glutes at the top of the movement.

Avoid bending forward at the torso. Instead, move by hinging at the hips.

Keep your back flat during the exercise to avoid injury.

The movement and power should originate in the hips. Avoid using your arms to pull the dumbbell up.
