Before I let any of my clients even touch a dumbbell, I teach them the art of bracing. Without switching on your glutes and your core, you're never going to maximise your strength. So if you want to push yourself and lift a personal best, you need to begin each move with the ultimate brace. That means your feet are screwed in, your glutes and hamstrings are engaged, your core is tight and your shoulders are back. Try this approach and see if it doesn't add significant kg to the limit you can lift.
