Instructions: How To

Focusing on the shoulders and upper back, the Handle Band Upright Row uses a resistance band to execute the rowing motion. This exercise improves shoulder and neck posture, offering a safer alternative to barbell rows by reducing the risk of shoulder impingement.

  1. Stand upright with your feet shoulder width apart and a resistance band underneath the middle of both feet holding the handles with and overhand grip directly in front of your hips.
  2. Pull your elbows up overhead to bring the handles to shoulder height keeping the handles close to your body.
  3. Return to the starting position and repeat.
