2. To raise the shoulders, inhale, and contract the traps. Squeeze the handles firmly at the top and slowly drop them back to the starting position.

3. Rep until you've completed the appropriate number of repeats.

1. Adjust the pulleys to the lowest anchor point and clip the straight bar attachment to the pulleys.

2. Standing directly in front of the bar, grasp it with both hands shoulder-width apart. Your palms should be facing your thighs.

3. You'll be standing upright with your arms fully extended with the bar in front of your thighs. Your shoulders will be relaxed and down.

4. Tighten your core muscles to ensure that your body is aligned and your spine is supported, then slowly lift your shoulders up to your ears, before returning them to their original position. Rest and repeat until you've completed all the repetitions.
