Stand with feet shoulder-width apart. Core is tight and back is flat.
Hold a barbell with an overhand grip. Hands should be closer than shoulder-width.

Bring the barbell above your head with arms fully extended. Keep the elbows up and the upper arms in place. Lower the barbell behind your head until your forearms touch your biceps. Return to the top of the movement.

Note: This exercise can be performed standing. However, it places an extra strain on your back so is not recommended for people with lower back problems.
