Bent Over Raises shoulders

Start/Finish

Start/Finish

Starting Position: With a dumbbell in each hand and your feet shoulder width apart, bend forward at the waist so your upper body is parallel with the floor. Let your arms hang straight down, palms facing each other.

This is a great exercise for your rear deltoids (where your back muscles and shoulders come together).

The Exercise: Raise the dumbbells, pulling your arms apart and moving your elbows up. Resist the temptation lo raise your torso as you lift the dumbbells. Pause for a count of one at the top when the dumbbells are in line with your shoulders, then slowly lower the weights to the starting position.
