Resistance Band Pullover

Step 1

Place a bench vertically behind you and loop a recovery band around the base. Lie on your back on the floor in front the bench and plant your feet on the floor hip-width apart with knees bent. Holding each end of the band in a neutral grip (palms facing inwards), extend your elbows directly above your head, ensuring that your hands are together. This is your starting position*. *It is important that there is some tension in the band when in this position. If there isn’t, you will need to place your hands further down the band.

Step 2

Inhale. Exhale. Ensuring your arms remain straight, pull the end of the band towards your upper legs.

Step 3

Inhale. Ensuring your arms remain straight, raise your arms to return to the starting position. Repeat for the specified number of repetitions.
