Instructions: How To

This exercise isolates the shoulder's lateral deltoids, utilizing a handle band for resistance. It enhances shoulder width and strength, providing a more joint-friendly option than dumbbells, with the added benefit of adjustable resistance.

  1. Stand upright with your feet hip width apart and a resistance band underneath the middle of both feet holding the handles with an overhand grip so your knuckles are facing away from the sides of your hips.
  2. Raise the resistance band handles laterally away from your body in a circular motion to just above your head height keeping your arms extended.
  3. Return to the starting position.
