This exercise is best performed one arm at a time (unilaterally). For variety, this exercise can be performed with the hand rotated palms up or palms down. The abdominals should be tensed throughout the movement with the focus on maintaining perfect posture. Instructions will be given for the right arm (adapt instructions for the left arm). Choose the desired resistance band. Anchor one end of the band by tying to a sturdy overhead structure or draping the band over the top of a door and shutting the door (recommend buying anchor attachment sold on this website). While standing, grip one of the band handles with right hand. The upper portion of the right arm should be pressed firmly against the torso with the elbow flexed to make a 90 degree angle. The left hand can rest on the left hip. Contract the right triceps and extend the forearm so that the elbow is almost locked, pause, and then return to the starting position. Complete an equal number of repetitions with each arm.
