- Holding a weight plate with both hands, plant both feet on the floor shoulder-width apart. Extend your arms out in front of you so that you are holding the weight plate at 3 o’clock and 9 o’clock directly in front of your chest. This is your starting position.
- While keeping both arms extended, rotate the plate to the left as far as you can. Avoid ‘shrugging’ your shoulders by drawing your shoulder blades down and back.
