If you are whisking by hand, use a circular motion, working from the center outwards. The goal of this process is the incorporate as much air as possible into the whites by working briskly at a constant speed.

Continue beating until when you lift the whisk, the mixture on the end is soft, voluminous and smooth. Beaten egg whites can increase up to 8 times from their original volume.
