- HOW: While keeping your elbows at your side, focus on spreading the arms as far as you can while holding onto a band. Initiate this motion with the shoulder blades and allow your arms to follow. The firmer the band (Double up the band if appropriate) or the more you tighten up the band, the more challenging this exercise will become.
- FEEL: Primarily the muscles on the inside of the shoulder blade with some assistance with the muscles on the back of the shoulder.
- COMPENSATIONS: Keep the low back from arching.
