Lever Shrug (plate loaded)

Lever Shrug (plate loaded)



Stand between lever handles to sides. Squat down with feet flat on floor and grasp upper handles to sides. Stand upright by extending hips and knees to full extension.


Elevate shoulders as high as possible. Lower and repeat.


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 becomes horizontal may be considered adequate depending upon individual body structure and range of motion with lighter weight.
