Move Targets: Shoulders and Triceps
Step 1: Stand with feet shoulder-width apart and step onto the band so the band is underneath the arches of your shoes. Cross the band one time over itself and hold the handles at hip height. Keep a slight bend in the knees so the muscles are engaged and the joints are protected.
Step 2: Pull the band up so the hands are nearly to the shoulders like you see Real Mom Model Amanda do here. Your elbows will peak upward, above the shoulder line. Keep the knees soft and the core braced.
Step 3: With control, slowly release the bands back to the hips. If you let them just drop, you're missing out on half of the exercise! The knees remain soft and the core never releases.
