This is a simple exercise for the back, shoulders and triceps. As with any exercise involving exercise or resistance bands you can adjust the difficulty by using different strength exercise bands.
- Stand with feet slightly apart. Arms should be raised to shoulder level, and elbows bent. Hands should be out in front each grasping a portion of the band.
- Exhale and pull band straight outwards, forcing hands away from each other. Hold for 2 seconds, exhale and release.
- Do 10-12 reps to complete this exercise. For extra challenge, squeeze shoulder blades together at the end of the movement and fully contract the triceps.
