Instructions: How To

This exercise isolates the shoulder muscles, with the mini loop band adding resistance for increased strength and muscle definition. Alternating arms increases core engagement and stability, providing a balanced workout that surpasses the effectiveness of simultaneous lateral raises.

  1. Stand upright with your elbows against your torso and bent to a 90 degree angle with a band wrapped around your forearms next to your elbow.
 Laterally raise your right elbow up to shoulder height keeping your left elbow next to your torso.
 Lower your right elbow to the starting position before repeating the movement with the opposite side.
 Repeat the alternating sequence for the allotted repetitions.
