There are 2 ways to perform this exercise: 1. Bring your arms straight up like in a forward shoulder raise. Make an arc with your hands starting at your hips, then reach up toward the ceiling, and continue until your hands are over your head. Return carefully to the start position. 2. Take your arms out to the side like a snow angel. Make an arc by taking your arms straight out to the side, just above the floor. Continue until your hands are above your head. Return carefully to the start position. With either option, do 10 - 12 repetitions. Tip: do one set of each exercise to help strengthen different parts of the deltoids.
