Learn set-up, movements and points to remember below:

Set Up

Anchor: Not required

Bands: Attach each end of the band(s) to an outer ring of the bar.

Body Positioning: Stand on the band(s) hips-width apart. Now bend down and grip the bar, slightly wider than shoulders width with both hands (palms facing behind you), and stand up straight with your back straight, head straight, chest up, and stomach tight. Keep a slight bend in your legs. Your arms should be straight down with palms facing your thighs, on top of your thighs.


While keeping the bar close to your body and arms straight down, raise your shoulders up towards the back of your head until they cannot raise any further. Return to the starting position (controlling the resistance). Repeat.

Points To Remember

1. As you raise the bar, do not move the shoulders forward. Keep your shoulders back.
