Exercise Instructions

  1. Select the desired weight and load it onto a barbell.
  2. Assume a shoulder width stance and grasp the bar at shoulder width with a pronated grip.
  3. Inhale, brace your abs, and raise the arms vertically while keeping the elbows nearly locked out.
  4. Once the arms are parallel with the floor, slowly lower the bar back to the starting position.
  5. Repeat for the desired number of repetitions.

Exercise Tips

  1. Don’t lean back as you raise the arms, keep the motion under control and don’t rely on momentum.
  2. Try not to bounce at the top of the movement, allow the shoulders to flex and then lower slowly.
