Step 1

Hold a barbell with both hands in an overhand grip (palms facing towards you) shoulder-width apart and plant both feet on the floor slightly further than shoulder-width apart. With arms extended, hold the barbell directly in front of your body. This is your starting position.

Step 2

Inhale. Exhale. Using the muscles in both your shoulders and arms, bend your elbows outwards and upwards to bring the barbell up to your chest. Avoid “shrugging” your shoulders by drawing your shoulder blades down and back.

Step 3

Inhale. Extend your elbows to return to the starting position. Repeat for the specified number of repetitions.
