Move Targets: Triceps and Core
Step 1: Wrap the band around a pole or bar low enough so it's the about the same height as your waist line. Cross the band once over itself and grab the handles leaving no slack in the band. Stand with feet between hip- and shoulder-width distance. Turn the abs on and keep the chest open.
Step 2: Pull the bands back behind you, keeping the arms close to the body. To check yourself, you should feel your hands graze your legs as you move backward. Do not lean forward.
Step 3: Release the band back to the starting position. Never allow the bands to "slack." Stay in control of the forward movement. Exhale on the way back and inhale as the arms come forward again.
