Start Position:
  1. Lying face-up on a bench (or on the floor if a bench isn’t available) with one leg extended in the air above you.
  2. Wrap the resistance band around the extended leg and grasp one end of the resistance band in each hand. Extend your arms toward your extended foot with a slight bend at your elbows. The length of the resistance band should be such that there is tension at this start position.
End Position:
  1. Arms slightly bent and extended to the side of your body.
  1. Pull the resistance band downwards whilst maintaining the slight bend at your elbow until you reach a position with your arms extended to the side of your body.
  2. Then return your arms 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.
