Band-Pull-Aparts

Move Targets: Shoulder, Triceps and Chest


Step-by-Step

Step 1: Grip the band so there is no slack in the middle. Have your arms extend straight out in front of you slightly outside of the shoulders. This is your starting position. With soft knees, tuck your pelvis forward so you can engage the core and protect your lower back.

Step 2: Pull the band out until your hands are in line with your shoulders. Keep the elbows soft. Remain for for at least a half-second before closing the rep.

Step 3: With control, bring the hands back to your starting position. Don't let any slack appear between your hands.
