Overhead Band Pull-Aparts

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 away from you) and extend your arms overhead. This is your starting position.

Step 2

Inhale. Exhale. Using the muscles in your shoulders and back, slowly pull the recovery band ends outward and backward to lower the band behind your head until it reaches shoulder height, bending the elbows slightly if needed.

Step 3

Inhale. While maintaining tension on the band, extend your elbows to return to the starting position. Repeat for the specified number of repetitions.
