Stand with your back straight, your feet shoulder-width apart, and your knees slightly bent. Hold a barbell behind your neck across the top of your shoulders. Your hands should be slightly more than shoulder-Width apart, palms facing forward. Keep your elbows pointing down and your chest high.
Slowly raise the barbell straight up, keeping your elbows pointed outward. Pull your head slightly forward to allow space for the bar to move. Hold for a second, then slowly lower the bar to the starting position.
