Exercise Instructions

  1. Assume a shoulder width stance with the cable running between your legs and grasp the handle with both hands using a pronated grip.
  2. Inhale, brace your abs, and raise the arms vertically while keeping the elbows slightly bent.
  3. Once the arms are parallel with the floor, slowly lower the handle back to the starting position.
  4. 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. If you experience pain at the shoulder while performing the movement, use a neutral grip and keep your thumb pointing at the ceiling.
  3. Try not to bounce at the top of the movement, allow the shoulders to flex and then lower slowly.

Greetings from Ohio! I'm bored to death at work so I decided to check out your website on my iphone during lunch break. I really like the knowledge you present here and can't wait to take a look when I get home. I'm surprised at how fast your blog loaded on my phone .. I'm not even using WIFI, just 3G .. Anyways, very good blog!
