PROPER EXERCISE TECHNIQUE

Grab a pair of dumbbells. Keep a slight bend in the knees and bend the upper body over about midway between standing upright and parallel to the ground. As an option to reduce mid-trap stimulation, utilize a grip variation anywhere between the supinated (palms up) and neutral (palms facing) position. Elbow back so that the dumbbells end up aligned with the upper abs at the top of the movement. To significantly minimize biceps recruitment, avoid flexing the arms past a 90-Degree bend. The below video demonstrates various positioning and cadence strategies.
