How do I perform a single leg side arm raise with two arms?

Stand on one leg with your foot pointed straight ahead.  Draw-in your navel and hold a dumbbell in each hand, with your arms hanging at your sides.  Raise both your arms up and away from the sides of your body with your palms facing down.  Raise the dumbbells to shoulder level being careful not to shrug your shoulders or arch your back.  Hold the top position and then return your arms to the sides of your body.

When performing a single leg, side arm raise with 2 arms, you want to first choose a weight. Next, stand on one leg, making sure that your foot is pointed forward, your glutes are squeezed and your abs are drawn-in. Be sure that your other foot that is off the ground remains close - but not touching - the other leg you are standing on. With a dumbbell in each hand, begin with your arms by your sides. Next, raise both arms up away from the sides of your body to shoulder height with your palms facing down. Be sure not to shrug your shoulders or arch your back. Pause at the top and then repeat for the desired number of repetitions.
