Lie on your back with your knees bent and feet flat on the floor. Make a fist with one hand and place it between your chin and collarbone; grasp that wrist with the other hand. Without moving your lower body, exhale and slowly curl your upper torso until your shoulder blades are off the ground. Hold for one second. Inhale as you slowly lower yourself to the starting position. Do 12 repetitions immediately following the first repetition of the shoulder exercises described on the previous slide; alternate between the two for a total of four sets each.
