1.) Start off by sitting on a bench with your toes pointing forward, keeping your back straight and your abs tight.
2.) Grab the barbell with an overhand grip and keep your hands shoulder-width apart.
3.) When bringing the barbell down towards your body, make sure that it is in line with your chin, hold for a count then push back upward over your head by extending your arms.
4.) When reaching the position above your head, pause and hold for a count, then return back to the starting position.
1.) If you are experiencing any shoulder pain, then you should not perform this exercise.
