Rip It – Band Pull-Apart
The Band Pull-Apart strengthens the upper back, which can alleviate shoulder pain and reduce the chance of injury. Make it a staple in your workouts and make pain-free gains forever.
- You can pull the band in multiple directions and at different angles for variety.
How to Do it:
- Grasp an elastic exercise band with a shoulder-width grip. Hold it out in front of you at arms length.
- Squeeze your shoulder blades together and pull the bands apart so it stretched and your arms are at 90 degrees to your sides. Return your arms in front of you and allow your shoulder blades to spread a bit. Don’t lean back as you pull – stay upright with your core tight. Don’t shrug your shoulders, and control the negative portion of each rep.
