Lever Seated Gripless Shrug

Instructions

Preparation

Sit on seat and place forearms in padded bars.

Execution

Elevate shoulders as high as possible. Lower and repeat.

Comments

Since this movement becomes more difficult as full shoulder elevation is achieved, height criteria for shoulder elevation may be needed. For example, raising shoulders until slope of shoulders become horizontal may be considered adequate depending upon individual body structure and range of motion with lighter weight. Also see ROM Criteria.
