    "doing" may be acceptable in common speech but you should try to be more exact.
    I was lifting dumbbells at the gym today, when suddenly I lost hold of the dumbbell. We have to do a back and forth movement with a dumbbell in one hand in this exercise so, when the dumbbell fell out of my hand, or when it got dropped, it went backwards and broke some glass"
