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 low to the floor.
  2. Lying face up with your head closest to the anchor point, grasp both ends of the resistance band in both hands with your arms extended above your head. There should be tension in the resistance band in this starting position.
  3. Engage your core so that you maintain correct posture, i.e. the natural arch of your lower back, throughout the movement.
End Position:
  1. Arms extended above your body with your hands above your abdomen whilst maintaining the body posture with which you started.
Action:
  1. Extend your arms from behind your head to above your abdomen whilst keeping your arms slightly bent throughout the movement*.
  2. Engage your core so that you maintain correct posture throughout the movement.
  3. Return to the starting position and repeat.
Modification Options:
  1. Vary the strength or length of the resistance band to increase/ decrease the difficulty of the exercise.
