How to do it

Steps :

1.) Start by loading the leverage machine with the amount of weight you would like to use for this exercise and then place yourself in between the handles.

2.) Grab the handles with a firm grip, then lower your body through your hips, lean forward and keep your chest up.

3.) Extend your body through the floor, pushing with your hips and knees as you rise to a standing position, making sure to keep your arms straight through the motion and your shoulders back.

4.) Slowly raise the weight by performing shoulder shrugs and bringing them up to your ears.

5.) Hold for a count then return back to the starting position.

6.) Repeat for as many reps and sets as desired.
