Take hold of suitable weight barbell, keep your core tight, your torso straight and stand with your feet flat on the floor. Position your hands at shoulder-width in an overhand grip with the extended arms holding the barbell in front of the groin. This is the starting position.
From this position, raise the arms upwards over 1-2 seconds until the bar is parallel to the floor. Breathe out as you lift and pause at the top for a second. Keep a slight bend in the elbow.
Lower the bar back and down over 1-2 seconds as you breathe in and return to the starting position.
