Standing Bent Over Front/Side Arm Raise
Beginner 8-10 Reps
Intermediate 12-15 Reps
Advanced 15-20 Reps
What you will need:
Connect one end of a resistance band to a large ankle strap, and attach a handle to the other end. Do the same for a pair of resistance bands. Grab the handles with underhand grip.
Connect the Foot loop to the opposite shoe opposed to the handle to create a crossover in the resistance bands.
Keep your back straight with a slight bend in the knees and bend forward at the waist. Head up and keep torso almost parallel to the floor.
Raise handles upward at the side or raise forward at the front until upper arms are above horizontal. Lower and repeat.
Absolute height of movement may depend on range of motion. Raise should be limited to height achieved just before rightness is felt in shoulder capsule. Alternatively, height just above horizontal may be considered adequate. Elbows may be kept straight or sightly bent throughout movement.
