Standing. Feet apart. Back straight. Barneck at the bottom, near the thighs, hands shoulder width grip on top:
– Inhale and stretch the bar up along your body, lifting your elbows as high as possible, until the bar reaches the chin. Then slowly return to starting position, straightening your arms, without making any sudden movements;
– Exhale at the end of the movement.
This exercise develops trapezius muscles, mainly their upper part, and
deltoid muscles, levator scapulae, biceps shoulder, shoulder muscles, muscles of the forearm,
abdomen, buttocks and sacral-lumbar muscles.
It should be noted that as wid the grip is, the more deltoid muscles are involved in the work and the trapezius muscles – less.
