Instructions: How To

Focusing on the muscles responsible for scapular movement, this exercise improves posture and upper back strength. The mini loop band adds resistance, making it more effective than traditional scapular retraction exercises, ideal for preventing shoulder injuries and improving posture.

  1. Stand upright while grabbing ahold of the band with both fists, palms facing up and your your elbows bent to 90 degrees next to your sides.
  2. Keep your elbows next to your sides and bent to 90 degrees as your laterally separate your fists to the outside of your torso as you squeeze your shoulder blades together.
  3. Control the band back to the starting position and repeat for the allotted repetitions.
