This is a classic exercise that is usually done with a barbell or dumbbells. Here is an option with an exercise band.
- Stand with feet about hip width apart. Tie a loop of exercise band and stand on the band with both feet. Grasp the loop with both hands and start with your hands at about hip height.
- Exhale and lift your hands up until they are at shoulder height and your elbows are out to the sides.
- As you lift your hands until your elbows and forearms are parallel with the floor. Inhale and lower your hands back to the start position.
Repeat the exercise 8-12 times, rest, then repeat the exercise if desired.
