How To Perform Exercise

When performing this exercise, you are working your front shoulder muscles.

Steps :

1.) Start off grabbing a barbell with an overhand grip and keeping your abs tight.

2.) Keeping your arms relatively straight, slightly bend your elbows, bend your knees and raise the barbell to shoulder level.

3.) Once at shoulder level, hold for a second then return back to the starting position in a controlled motion.

Tips :

1.) During this exercise it is important to keep your abs tight to support your back muscles and do not use your back to help you lift.
