Muscle Up Monday with Optimal Health Coaching
Straight Arm Band Pull Down
Looking for a great triceps exercise that you could do from home?
Do you have a resistance band?
Often I do this exercise as a warm up before lifting heavier weights for shoulders/tris to ensure I am activating the rotator cuff muscles.
Simple set up:
1. Swing the band over top of something about 2 feet above your head.
2. Grab handles and hold them equally out in front of you (about a foot in front of you)
3. With straight arms pull the band and lower your hands to the front of your thighs.
o Keep the shoulders down (don’t let them hunch up close to your ears).
Do a few sets of 20 to get this moving nicely!
