This exercise works mainly delts and triceps, but the chest muscles, the back and the traps are also involved.


Take a shoulder-width grip on the bar with your palms facing outwards and the bar laying across your front shoulders. Raise the bar upwards in front of your face all the way up above your head. From top position slowly start to lower the bar back to starting position, then repeat the movement.


Be careful: do not lean back when you are raising the bar. This can make the exercise easier, but at the same time puts unnecessary pressure on your spine while taking away the necessary pressure from your shoulder muscles.

Never hold back your breath! Always wear extra support belt for the sake of the stability of your hips.
