Back, Shoulders, Trapezius


Hold a light resistance band overhead with a supinated grip (overhand) and straight arms. Create tension in the band, actively pulling it apart, and begin rotating your arms upward. Squeeze your glutes, and keep your ribcage down, as you elevate your scapula (Shrug your shoulders) and allow the band to pass over your head. Continue until the band touches your back. Then reverse the motion and return to the start. Repeat for repetitions. Over time aim to tighten your shoulder circles by adopting a closer grip or upgrading to a stronger resistance band. Conversely, take a wider grip to make the movement easier, and ensure you keep your arms straight throughout the movement.
