Targeting the triceps, this standing exercise uses a loop band to add resistance to the extension movement. It's effective for isolating the triceps, promoting muscle tone, and strength without the need for heavy weights. The loop band's versatility also allows for adjustments in resistance, making it a suitable exercise for both beginners and advanced individuals.

  2. Place the band under the midfoot area of both feet.
  3. Grip the loop with both hands and as you brace your core, bring the loop overhead.
  4. Slowly the loop behind your head by bending the elbows, this will be the starting position.
  5. Exhale and straighten the arms by pushing the band towards the ceiling or sky.
  6. Inhale and slowly return the band to starting position.
