Move Targets: Triceps
Step 1: Stand with feet hip-width apart stepping on top of the resistance band. Hold one handle of the band with either hand and hinge yourself forward with a straight back. Bend the arms at 90 degrees with the elbows tucked into your sides. Make sure you have no slack in the band – if you do, reach your hands through the hands and grab onto the band itself.
Step 2: Keep your back straight, head in line with your torso and upper arms glued to your sides. Exhale and extend both arms behind you. Squeeze the triceps or back of the arms, and only extend the arms far enough to feel the triceps contract. Sending them too far behind you can harm the rotator cuffs of the shoulders.
Step 3: Inhale and bring the hands forward again without allowing the elbows to move away from the body.
