The upright row targets the front and side (anterior and lateral) as well as synergists such and the trapezius. When using an exercise band you can increase or decrease the challenge of the exercise by changing the strength of the band.
- Start with feet shoulder width apart with band securely under both feet. Both hands should be grasping handles of the band, arms resting just in front of your hips
- Inhale and pull hands up towards the chin, elbows out. Allow wrists to flex as you bring the exercise band upward.
- Recommended reps: 10-12 and increase resistance as you progress.
