Move Targets: Chest, Triceps and Core
Step 1: Wrap the band around a sturdy pole or bar. Face this pole and grab the handles at equal pressure. Set the feet as wide as the shoulders and bend the knees. As you see here, Amanda is leaning back just a little to engage the core.
Step 2: Pull the arms back so the elbows go against the ribcage and straight back. Bring the hands as close to your abs as possible. Try not to rock your entire body, but squeeze the muscles tight to stabilize. Stay firm in your stance.
