Start Position:
  1. In a standing position with your feet shoulder-width apart, place the mid-point of the resistance band under both feet and hold the ends with your hands outside of your thighs, i.e. with your palms facing forward. There should be some tension in the resistance band at this starting position.
  2. Maintain the natural curve in your lower back.
End Position:
  1. In a standing position with your arms bent in front of your body with your palms facing your body. Maintain the natural curve in your lower back.
Action:
  1. Curl your arms up whilst keeping your elbows by your side. Maintain the natural curve in your lower back. This can be assisted by keeping your core engaged.
  2. Your head should be kept in a position in line with your body, i.e. not tilting forward.
  3. Then, return to the start position and repeat.
Modification Options:
  1. Vary the strength or length of the resistance band to increase/ decrease the difficulty of the exercise.
  2. To further increase the intensity, this exercise may also be performed with one arm at a time, i.e. with both ends of the resistance band in the one hand.
