Resistance Band Shoulder YTWs

Resistance Band Shoulder YTWs

*Always check with a doctor prior to beginning a new workout or health regimen

These resistance band exercises work your shoulders, rhomboid muscles, and rotator cuffs. They also improve your posture.

  • Wrap the middle of a light resistance band around a stationary object at chest height.
  • Back away from the object until the band is almost taut.
  • Hold the band in front of you with a handle in each hand, palms facing in. This is the start position.
  • Raise both arms overhead with palms facing forward to form a Y shape. 
  • Return to the start position. 
  • Extend both arms to your sides at shoulder height to form a T shape. 
  • Return to the start position. 
  • Bend your arms and bring your elbows close to your side. Pull your elbows back and squeeze your shoulder blades together, forming a W shape. 
  • Return to the start position.
