Video Transcription

0:00 Lying on your back, with the shoulders set and the arm straight up above you holding the weight. Slowly, lower the arm down towards the side. The further down you lower the arm, the heavier the exercise will be on the muscles. Ensure you do not lower the arm further than you can control the shoulder blade. Keep the back relaxed and breathe slowly all the way through the exercise.
