Step 1

With a recovery band around your back and under your arms, plant your feet in a split stance with your left foot forward and right foot back. Extend your arms directly in front of your chest, holding the ends of the band with an overhand grip (palms facing down), ensuring that your hands are shoulder-width apart. This is your starting position.

Step 2

Inhale. Bend your elbows outwards to bring the ends of the band towards you until your hands are in line with your chest*. *It is important that there is still 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 3

Exhale. Extend your elbows and push the ends of the band away from your chest to return to the starting position. Repeat for the specified number of repetitions.
