You Will Need
- An un-weighted barbell
Hold barbell across neck & shoulders
Stand with your knees slightly bent and your feet shoulder width apart. Hold a barbell across your trapezius muscles—which connect your neck to your shoulders.
Slowly bend forward from your hips while keeping your back straight until your back is parallel to the floor.
Raise torso back upright
Breathe out as you slowly raise your torso back upright.
Repeat until tired
Repeat the lift until you're tired—but don't overdo it.
