    Muscles worked: Deltoids (side)

    Instructions:
    Position one foot on the xertube and the other placed on the floor behind you with your back straight. Place the handles in front of your thighs with your palms facing each other. Bend your arms slightly and keep them rounded throughout the movement. Bend slightly forward at the waist and maintain that position throughout the exercise. Next, slowly raise the handles out in a semicircular arc out to your sides and slightly forward to about eye level. When your hands have reached eye level, twist your wrists causing your thumbs to point to the floor. Pause there for one second and contract your deltoids. Lower the handles back down to the starting position and repeat.
    Note You can do each arm one at a time to concentrate more on your side deltoids.
    Dont's:
    Don't jerk the handles up. Use a slow controlled movement.
