Back, Shoulders

Description

Grip a light resistance band, hands about shoulder width apart, with a supinated grip (palms facing up) Start with your arms extended in front of you at about eyes level. Keep your arms straight, and pull the band apart by retracting your scapula (pinch your shoulder blades together). Bring your arms directly out your sides, and finishing at shoulder level, squeezing the middle of your back. Control back to the start position and repeat for repetitions. Focus on engaging the scapula, try to keep a light grip on the band and avoid driving the movement with your arms. Return to the start with control. Repeat for Repetitions. Keep the shoulders depressed (Down, away from the ears, don't allow them to shrug upward)
