Target Area: Shoulders
Trainer: Cecelia Ticktin
The Move: Stand with feet parallel and shoulder-width apart. Hold a large soup can in each hand, and with shoulders down and arms straight, slowly raise the cans in front of your body so that from a bird’s eye view, your arms are forming a V. Then spread your arms until they’re lined up with your body (as if someone were measuring your wingspan) and bring them back down to your side. Repeat six times then reverse for six.
