Sit on floor with knees slightly bent, feet hip-width apart. Keep back straight, abs in, and heels on the floor. Loop band around the soles of the feet, holding one end of the band in each hand, palms facing down.
EXHALE: Pull hands toward chest so elbows and fists are at or near shoulder level, pinching shoulder blades together at the end of the movement. INHALE: Slowly return to starting position to complete one repetition.Repeat for 10-15 repetitions, 1-2 sets.
Make it harder: Spread feet apart so they lie on the band closer to handles for more resistance. Also, try crossing the handles so that the band forms an “X” as you hold the left handle in the right hand, etc. Make it easier: Do not cross handles and keep feet close together at center of band.Muscles worked: Upper back, Triceps
