An exercise that targets the muscles of the shoulders and upper back.
Stand with legs shoulder width apart, knees slightly bent, back straight. Hold a weight plate out in front of you with elbows at a 90 degree angle to the body. Your elbows should not be closely tucked in but flared out just a bit to avoid recruiting the biceps. Raise the weight over your head, keeping your elbows bent at 90 degrees. Avoid swaying the back or using your forearms to raise the weight. Lower the weight slowly to the starting position.
