Exercise Advice: Stand facing a cable pulley machine with your feet about shoulder width apart. Attach a short bar to the low cable pulley. Grasp the short bar with both hands using and overhand grip and allow your arms to hang down completely straight. To execute this movement, simply shrug your shoulders while keeping your arms completely straight. Be sure that you hold your shoulders in the shrug position for a one-count at the top of the movement. Return to the start position and repeat for the desired amount of repetitions.
