Bring the arms out to the side with elbows bent and backs of forearms touching wall. Tuck your chin, with back of your head pressed into wall. Maintain contact with the wall with the back, head, shoulder blades, and forearms, and raise arms above head as high as you can; slowly bring them back to the starting position.
