Instructions: How To

Performed seated with a loop band, this exercise focuses on shoulder and upper body strength. The seated position ensures stability and allows for concentrated effort on the deltoids as the band provides resistance throughout the press motion. This variation is excellent for isolating the shoulders, enhancing muscular endurance, and can be particularly beneficial for individuals with limited lower body mobility.

  1. Sit on the ground facing the anchor with legs crossed or both legs stretched out in front of you.
  2. Place the band under the butt area so you are securely sitting on it.
  3. Grip the loop with both hands at shoulder-width apart and position your hands just outside the shoulders, palms facing forward, and elbows flexed to your sides.
  4. Extend your arms overhead by pressing through your palms while keeping your wrists and forearms vertical to the ground. 
  5. Maintain an upright posture throughout the movement.
  6. Your hands should be aligned with your ears at fill arm extension before descending them back at a normal pace to the starting position.
