Setup instructions

1) Find an apparatus and stand close to it. Grab it and extend your arm - this will cause you to lean in the opposite direction. Keep the chest up, core tight, back flat and head neutral - the body has to be aligned for this to work.

2) Grab a dumbbell and let it hang by your waist.

Perform instructions

1) With a slight bend in your elbow and arm fairly straight, slowly lift the weight away from your body towards the ceiling.

2) Stop when your arm is somewhat parallel to the ground - this is a slow and controlled exercise.

3) Pause for a second and lower it back to the starting position.

4) Repeat.
