Pick up a bar off the ground using your legs and stand with your feet shoulder-width apart. Bend your knees and hold the weight in front of your body with your hands space about shoulder-width apart. Bend your arms slightly and raise the weight up in front of your body until it is slightly higher than shoulder-height. Lower the weight back down over the same path and continue until you reach muscular failure.
Tips: There is no need to raise the weight any higher than just above shoulder-height as this will move the stress away from your shoulders. Also remember to keep your arms slightly bent throughout the entire exercise. In order to maximize muscle stimulation and prevent lower back stress, try to move naturally throughout this movement rather than keeping your back completely straight and rigid. Allow your form to loosen up a little bit and use a tiny bit of momentum as you lift and lower the weight.
