- While seated on a yoga mat, extend both legs out in front of you with your feet flexed. Wrap the recovery band around the bottom of your feet so that you are holding one end of the band in each hand. Ensure that the recovery band is in good condition and securely anchored around your feet to avoid injury. You could also press your feet against a sturdy object to help keep the band in place. Sit up tall and draw your shoulder blades down and back to push your chest out. Extend your arms in front of you so that you are holding the ends of the band with a neutral grip (palms facing inwards). This is your starting position.
- Inhale. Exhale. Using the muscles in both your arms and back, bend your elbows backwards to increase the tension in the band, 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.
