In this exercise the important thing is to use the same arc of  movement while you are pushing and lowering the dumbbells. Repeat this exercise in series, around 8-10 reps per each of the series. Whenever you are done with one of your series, put the dumbbells on your thighs again, so you can switch on bigger weight.
