What are you exercising and why?
This exercise builds strength in your shoulders and upper back. Strength around the shoulders helps to keep your back straight and chest open during running. The stronger you are here the longer you can keep up a good posture during running.

How to do this exercise?
Raise your arms with your elbows pointing outward, as if you're lifting weights. Extend your arms fully up and then pull them down until your hands almost touch your shoulders.

Aim for 15 to 50 repetitions. To increase the load, use a barbell.

Tips for effective strength exercising:

1. Perform strength exercises two or three times a week.
2. Start with few repetitions and build up step by step.
3. Don't hold your breath while exercising. As a rule, breathe out while using strength.
4. When performed correctly, you should feel a burning sensation in the exercised muscles.
