General and Specifics

Starting Position

  • grasp a barbell or ez bar in the middle with both hands
  • the hands are next to each other, not one above the other
  • the feet are shoulder width apart
  • guide the weight above one shoulder and hold it there with bent arms (the bar does not rest on the shoulder)

Correct Execution

  • bring the weight up, above your head and to the other shoulder by stretching your arms
  • the weight does not touch the shoulder here neither, bring it back to the starting position
  • your sight does not follow the weight, but look straight ahead
  • try to stick to a stable position, your core supports you
  • do not tilt forward or sideways
  • after several reps, switch the positions of your hands
  • repeat
