Exercise Families:Shoulder Adduction
- Holding a dumbbell with both hands, lie down on a bench. Plant your feet on the floor on either side of the bench, or on the bench itself — whichever is most comfortable. Extend your elbows to hold the dumbbell directly above your chest. This is your starting position.
- Inhale. Without changing the angle of your elbows, draw the dumbbell backwards and over your head in an arc-like motion until your upper arms are in line with your ears.
- Exhale. Draw the dumbbell upwards and forwards in the same arc-like motion to return to the starting position, once again, ensuring that the angle of your elbows remains unchanged. Repeat for the specified number of repetitions.
