Start Position:
  1. Wrap the resistance band around an object that is not going to move such as a pole, fence, tree or something similar. The resistance band should be at chest-height.
  2. Stand side-on to the anchor point in a balanced, stable stance holding both ends of the resistance band in both hands.
  3. Your chest is facing forward with your arms straight and hands at chest height.
  4. Move away from the anchor point to create tension in the resistance band.
End Position:
  1. Stand side-on to the anchor point in a balanced, stable stance holding both ends of the resistance band in both hands.
  2. Your chest is facing forward with your arms straight and hands at chest height.
Action:
  1. Whilst holding both ends of the resistance band in both hands with your arms directly in front of you, step sideways away from the anchor point until the resistance band is too tense to go any further.
  2. Then slowly walk sideways back toward the anchor point, stopping before all tension is lost in the resistance band. Return to the starting position and repeat.
  3. Once you have completed your set on one side, turn to face the opposite direction and repeat on the other side.
Modification Options:
  1. Vary the strength or length of the resistance band to increase/ decrease the difficulty of the exercise.
