  1. Stand with your knees slightly bent, buttocks out, arms at your side and your elbows bent to 90 degrees directly at your side.
  2. Bring your elbows out and away from your body while keeping your forearms parallel with the floor. Your elbows should reach shoulder level but go no higher.

Helpful Hints:
When in the elevated position, be sure to keep wrists straight and your wrists, elbows, and shoulders in alignment. Pretend you have a glass of water on your wrist, elbow and shoulder to help with form.
