Set up with the pole on the same side as your strongest arm. Position yourself with the pole against your upper trap, beside your neck.

Start to engage your upper body by pulling downward on the pole, as if you want to bend it to the ground. Elbows pointing forward (Not flaring out) Stay in a hollow position, PPT and core braced.
