Shoulder Extension

With right leg back in a staggered stance, stand in front of a table or counter that is about mid-thigh height. Keep your knees relaxed, bend at the hips, and keep a flat back. Put left hand on counter to support your body. Set your right shoulder blade by pulling it back and down. Raise arm straight back until hand is just past hip level. Remember: keep a loose grip on the weight and lead with your wrist, keeping elbow bent slightly throughout the motion. Return arm to beginning position and pause. Do not swing. Switch legs in your stance to repeat for the other arm.

  • Stop arm in line with back leg.
