To perform a Franklin, start standing with a dumbbell in each hand to your sides. Begin with an overhand grip, spreading your arms outward until parallel with the ground. Lower the weights and then push your hands out in front of you until your arms are parallel to the ground. Lower the weights back to your sides and then push them up to shoulder height and press them over your head. Using two counts return the weights to shoulder level and then back to your sides. Spread your arms out to the sides again until they are parallel to the ground. Lower them to your sides, bend over at a 90 degree angle with the dumbbells hanging toward the floor. Spread your arms out until they are parallel to the ground, and then lower them again. Stand upright with weights in hands hanging down at each side.
