Move Targets: Upper Back
Step 1: You'll need a bench or elevated surface to lie on for this move. This version is the straight-arm pullover. You'll lie on your back with the knees bent and feet on the floor. Hold the weight with both hands over the chest.
Step 2: Keeping the elbows slightly bent so the muscles are engaged instead of the joints, send the weight up and over the top of the head. When the weight is in line with the top of your head, stop and reverse the motion (brace the core!). Respect your range of motion if your shoulders do not want to extend as far.
