Instructions: How To

Loop Band Shoulder Squeeze is an isolation exercise that primarily targets your back, but also hits your shoulders, traps, and triceps. The use of a loop band increases tension as you progress through the movement, making this a great exercise for developing strength near the end of your range of motion. This is a great addition later in your workout when you really want to fatigue your back, and build some muscle.

  1. Stand upright with your feet shoulder width apart grabbing a resistance band with an overhand grip with your arms extended in front of you at shoulder height.
  2. Pull the band apart by bringing your arms away from each other in a circular motion until your arms are directly lateral to your shoulders while squeezing your shoulder blades together.
  3. Return your extended arms back to the starting position.

Common Mistakes

  • Varying Tension with Bands

    Resistance increases as you stretch a band. Make sure you’re using a band that allows you to move through your full range of motion. The resistance may feel too light during parts of the movement.
