- Standing on the middle of a recovery band, plant both feet on the floor shoulder-width apart. While maintaining a slight bend in your knees, hinge forward from your hips so that your torso is parallel to the floor. Extend your arms directly below your chest, holding the ends of the recovery band with a neutral grip (palms facing inwards). This is your starting position.
- Inhale. Exhale. Bend your elbows to bring the ends of the recovery band in towards your lower ribs, ensuring that your elbows remain in close contact with the sides of your body. You should feel a small squeeze between your shoulder blades.
- Inhale. Extend your elbows to return to the starting position. Repeat for the specified number of repetitions.
