Shoulder lift

Picture of the shoulder lift exercise
  1. Lie facedown with your arms beside your body.
  2. Lift your head and shoulders straight up from the floor as high as you can without pain. Keep looking at the floor so you do not arch your neck back. Keep your torso and hips pressed to the floor.
  3. Hold for about 6 seconds, then relax for up to 10 seconds.
  4. Repeat 8 to 12 times.
