Hold the plate equally on each side, roughly towards the middle.
Allow a slight bend through your elbows when raising the weight. On the way up, imagine a string pulling through your elbows.
Raise the plate past face level.
Repeat repetitions until failure of form or strength.
Look to add drop sets to this exercise for a wicked finish after your last working set!
