SHOULDERS: Building power through torque
Retract your shoulders and pull your arms up to a 90-degree angle, then rotate your elbows so your hands are even with your head. Finally, press your arms straight forward, keeping your arms level with your head. Pull your arms back in and down for one rep. Complete two sets of 10 reps.
Make it harder: Add more weight. (Hint: Too much weight will cause your arms to droop, defeating the purpose of the exercise. None of Doddato’s LPGA players uses more than 5 pounds.)
