A dynamic exercise targeting the posterior shoulder muscles, upper back, and improving shoulder mobility. By pulling the loop band apart overhead, it effectively engages the rear deltoids, rhomboids, and traps, essential for enhancing posture and reducing the risk of shoulder injuries. The overhead motion increases shoulder flexibility and strength, making it an excellent addition to both warm-up routines and strength training sessions.

  2. Hold it over your head with your palms facing forward.
  3. Adjust your hand positions until you find the right amount of tension in the band.
  4. Pull your arms out and down, stretching the loop band out behind your head.
  5. Stop when your loop band is in line with your arms.
  6. Slowly return to the starting position.
