Instructions: How To

Targeting the back, shoulders, and biceps, the Handle Band Row mimics rowing movements with resistance bands. This exercise improves back strength and posture, offering a convenient and effective alternative to machine rows, with the added benefit of portability.

  1. Stand upright with your feet hip width apart and a resistance band underneath the middle of both feet holding the handles so that your palms are facing each other.
  2. Lean your torso forward and push hips backward to create a 45 degree angle with your torso and hold this position throughout the movement.
  3. Pull the handles up to your lower chest bringing your elbows past the sides of your torso.
  4. Return the handles to the starting position.
