Take a dumbbell in each hand and hold them at your sides.
Keeping your arms straight, raise your
shoulders and trpezius muscles straight up, as high as you can, at least to a
point just below your earlobes.
Hold the weight in the contracted position
for a few moments.
Lower slowly to the starting position, and
repeat the exercise for the recommended number of sets and repetions. This
exercise can also be perfomed with a barbell.
