This exercise trains the entire shoulder musculature, particularly the lateral shoulder muscles.
- Sit on the exercise ball with perfect posture. The band should be under both feet and your feet should be approximately hip width apart. Holding the band in each hand, you should feel that there is some tension in the band before you start the movement.
- Keeping the elbows slightly bent, exhale and lift your hands until they are almost at shoulder height. Pause for 2-3 seconds, then inhale and slowly lower your hands back to the start position.
Repeat 10-12 times, rest, then repeat the entire exercise if desired.
