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 in front of your thighs, i.e. with your arms straight, with your palms facing in or towards your thighs. Maintain the natural curve in your lower back.
  2. There should be some tension in the resistance band at this starting position.
End Position:
  1. In a standing position with your arms bent and elbows out to the side and hands close to your side. Maintain the natural curve in your lower back.
Action:
  1. Bend your arms lifting your hands upwards, keeping them close to the side of your body with your palms facing in or towards your body. 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.
