Instructions: How To

The Handle Band Shoulder Press focuses on the deltoids and triceps, offering a versatile upper body workout. Using a resistance band with handles allows for a full range of motion, improving shoulder strength and flexibility with less joint stress compared to dumbbells.

  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 forward at shoulder height.
  2. Extend your arms overhead until the resistance band handles are directly over top of your shoulders.
  3. Return the handles back to shoulder height and repeat.
