Stand in front of a table or counter that is about bellybutton height. Stand with right leg back in a staggered stance. Keep your knees relaxed, bend at the hips, and keep a flat back. Put left forearm on counter and rest your forehead on your arm. Set your right shoulder blade by pulling it back and down. Raise arm straight to the side until hand is at shoulder level. Keep 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.
