Like the Low Box Batwing T's last week, Band Pull Aparts are another exercise that doesn't look like much.
However, when done strictly, it will really work a lot of upper back and rear shoulder muscles.
It can also be done for fairly high volume sets and those muscles respond well to that.
The resistance bands like this can be bought for about £6 - £7 from Amazon and are great to throw inbetween sets of chest presses or as a warm up.
Key teaching points:
• Stand tall with feet hip to shoulder width apart. Abs and butt muscles lightly braced.
• Hold a resistance band with both hands. Arms parallel to the floor, hands about shoulder width apart
• Take a breath in and keeping arms straight, squeeze shoulder blades together whilst pulling the band apart in an arc motion until arms are at the side of the body
• With control, return to start position.
To make this exercise easier to begin with, start with the hands wider apart.
