EXERCISE INSTRUCTIONS:

  1. SETUP: Loop a resistance band to a secure surface at about thigh height. Get into a split-stance for support, and position yourself behind band, so it’s pulling you forward.
  2. LIFT: Keep your shoulders pinned back and try to pull your elbows & hands directly above your shoulders. The top of the rep should look like a “Y”.
  3. TIP: Arms going over the head like this will work the lower traps, a very weak muscle group for most people. The benefit of using a band, versus the cable version shown in the list below, is that the tension is greatest during the peak phase of the rep only.

MUSCLES WORKED BY THIS EXERCISE:
