1. Reverse Fly
Hinge at the waist, engage your core, and retract your shoulder blades to bring your arms straight out to the side. Return to the starting position in a controlled fashion and repeat!
2. Front Raise
Assume a comfortable stance in a standing position with your back straight. Grab the handles of the resistance band with your palms facing towards you. Contract your front deltoids to raise the handles in front of you stopping just above forehead level. Slowly bring the handles down to the starting position and repeat!
3. Shoulder Press
Assume a comfortable stance in a standing position with your back straight. Grasp the handles of the resistance band, bend your elbows and bring them up to your shoulders so that your palms are facing away from you. Squeeze your deltoids to press the handles upwards above your head.
Then, return to the starting position. Repeat!
4. Side Raise
Assume a comfortable stance in a standing position with your back straight. With your palms facing slightly inward, contract your lateral deltoids to raise your arms out to just about the top of your head level. Slowly bring the handles down towards your side and repeat!
Assume a comfortable stance in a standing position with your back straight. With your arms straight, bring the handles out in front of you with your palms facing down.
