Keep shoulder blades squeezed together (retracted) and maintain position throughout entire exercise. Keep elbows fixed, maintaining a slight bend. Avoid bending the elbow joint during the exercise. Throughout motion, shoulders form 90 degree angle to body. In a controlled motion, start lowering arms until upper arms are approximately parallel to floor.
