Your knees should be slightly bent. Raise your head just slightly. Raise your upper body in a sit-up movement until your back is almost vertical keeping your arms fully extended and the weight plate up over your head.

Pause for a one-count, return to the starting position and repeat. Keep your back as straight as possible throughout the movement.
