Workout 48: Shoulders & Forearms
1. Stand upright with your feet shoulder-width apart. Grasp the barbell with an overhand grip that is slightly less than shoulder width apart. The bar should be in front of your thighs with your arms extended and your palms facing your body.
2. Use the sides of your shoulders to lift the bar up towards your chest and drive your elbows up and to the side. Keep the bar close to your body as you raise it.
3. While keeping your elbows flared out, continue to lift the bar until it’s at your upper chest level. Keep your torso stationary and pause for a second at the top of the movement.
4. Slowly lower the bar back to the starting position.
