Pulling straps for toned arms - Women's Health & Fitness

Targets: Shoulders and back

You’ll need: A mat, straps or something similar. 

Hold the end of the band in each hand, and lie face down on the mat with the band under your body. With your legs together, stretch your arms out wide in line with your shoulders. Keeping your arms straight, try connecting your shoulder blades, and release, returning to staring position. Remember to maintain pace with this exercise so the bands don’t pull your arms back to the floor. 

Aim for three sets of 10 reps.
