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 in front of your thighs, i.e. with your arms slightly bent and your palms facing your body.
Maintain the natural curve in your lower back.
There should be some tension in the resistance band at this starting position.
In a standing position with your arms slightly bent and your arms extended in front of your body at about shoulder-level with your palms facing down. Maintain the natural curve in your lower back.
With your arms slightly bent, lift your arms up directly in front of your body to about shoulder-level. Maintain the natural curve in your lower back. This can be assisted by keeping your core engaged.
Your head should be kept in a position in line with your body, i.e. not tilting forward.
Then, return to the start position and repeat.
Vary the strength or length of the resistance band to increase/ decrease the difficulty of the exercise.
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.
