Tips

  1. Raise arms up until they are in line with shoulders.

  3. Do not jerk weight up. Raise arms up in a slow controlled manner. Decrease weight if necessary.

Variations

  1. Alternate arms back-and-forth instead of raising both simultaneously.
  2. Perform with palms facing the ground.
  3. Perform an incline T raise. This can be performed by rotating arms so that your palms are facing forward in starting position. Next, raise arms straight up from your sides until they are in line with your shoulders. Pause, then slowly lower back down.
