Set-up: Begin seated on the floor with your palms and feet in contact with the ground. Lift your butt off the ground with your arms straight and fingers pointed outwards.
Movement: Engage your traps and upper back muscles to elevate your shoulders and raise yourself higher off of the ground. Pause at the top and return to the start position along the same path under steady control.
Emphasis: If the exercise is too difficult, start by holding yourself in the end position and focusing on the contraction in your triceps and traps.
