How to: Resistance Band Shoulder Press

- With a long resistance band around the bottom of both feet, plant both feet on the floor slightly further than shoulder-width apart. Hold the band in front of your shoulders with an overhand grip (palms facing away from your body). This is your starting position.
- Inhale. Exhale. Using the muscles in both your shoulders and arms, extend your elbows to press the band above your head. Avoid “shrugging” by drawing your shoulder blades down and back.
- Inhale. Once your arms are fully extended, bend your elbows to lower the band into your chest to return to the starting position. Repeat for the specified number of repetitions.
