This exercise works your front shoulder muscles to improve all of your arm movement and help with everyday life. And you'll feel better with sculpted shoulders.

Muscle group: Shoulder


Grasp a barbell with an overhand grip. Keep your abs tight. With your arms relatively straight, only a slight bend in your elbows, and your knees slightly bent, raise the barbell to shoulder level. Hold briefly then lower in a controlled manner.


Be sure to hold your abs tight to support your back. Even though it's tempting, don't bend back to help you lift. Also, be careful not to lock your elbows.
