Front Raise With Pull Apart – Band, Overhead

  • HOW: Start in a standing position with a band anchored under your feet, hold the band in each hand with your palms facing down. Begin the exercise by keeping the rest of your body still and then performing a front raise with your arms until your hands are shoulder height. Then, while maintaining this position, pull the band apart by bringing your hands out laterally/horizontally until your arms are lined up with your torso. Return to the front raise position, then return to starting position and repeat.
  • FEEL: This should feel like an upper body workout, specifically your deltoids, traps, and upper back muscles. You should feel your shoulder blades working a lot with this exercise.
  • COMPENSATION: Keep the rest of your body still, do not excessively arch or bend your back. Do not use momentum to raise your arms. Do not let your elbows excessively bend. Do not excessively shrug.
