Step 1

Plant both feet on the floor slightly further than shoulder-width apart. Hold one hand on each end of the recovery band with an overhand grip (palms facing down) and extend your arms directly in front of your chest, ensuring that your elbows are completely locked. This is your starting position.

Step 2

Inhale. Exhale. Using the muscles in your shoulders and back, pull the recovery band ends outwards and backwards until your arms are in line with your shoulders. You should feel a small squeeze between your shoulder blades.

Step 3

Inhale. Hold this position briefly before gently drawing the ends of the recovery band together to return to the starting position. Repeat for the specified number of repetitions.
