  • Come into a standing position with the shoulders back and the head positioned directly over the pelvis
  • Take the weight prescribed with the target limb so the elbow lines up with the shoulder. This should form a 90 degree angle
  • With the palm facing forward extend the weight overhead
  • Keep the wrist above the shoulder as the elbow extends
  • Lower with control to the start position and repeat as per Physiotherapist prescription


  • Ensure your pelvis remains slightly tucked under to avoid arching the back
  • Avoid swinging the weight overhead
  • Keep the neck in a neutral ‘eyes forward’ position
