Position yourself with your back to a box, bench or another suitable, elevated surface. Rest your hands on the box and your feet on the floor. Let your heels support your weight. From this position, bend your elbows in a controlled downwards movement. Once the elbows are bent to #90º, return to the starting position by stretching the arms completely.

Count one repetition per bend.


– Keep your back straight.
– Bend down as low as possible and stretch back as high as possible.
