This exercise for strengthening the chest and shoulder girdle muscles is a bit more strenuous.
- Sit upright with perfect posture on a ball or a more stable surface, such as a stool or couch. Have the band stretching around your back and hold the band with both hands.
- Keeping your elbows just slightly bent, start to bring your arms forward. Keep your arms parallel with the floor.
- Continue the movement by bringing your hands together, squeezing the chest muscles.
Repeat this movement ten to twelve times, then relax. Repeat the entire exercise sequence once or twice.
