Stand with feet shoulder-width apart holding a single dumbbell in both hands in front of you. Now, bend your knees and rotate your body to the left while moving the dumbbell to the outside of your left knee. As you press up into a standing position, rotate your body right and press the dumbbell over your right shoulder. That’s one rep. Continue chopping down and up, quickly but in control for 15 seconds.  Then repeat the exercise for another 15 seconds, this time rotating down to your right while bending your knees and chopping the dumbbell down to outside of your right knee. Reverse the motion as you stand and rotate left and press the dumbbell over your left shoulder.
