This exercise works the deltoids really well. Start by standing with your legs about shoulder-width apart with your knees just slightly bent. Grasp a plate with both hands. Your arms should be down with the plate in front of your thighs.
Keeping your arms as straight as you can raise your arms up until they are parallel to the floor. Hold them there for one second count and then slowly return to the starting position and repeat. Avoid injury by not swinging or jerking as you do the movements. Use your shoulder muscles, not your back.
