Standing in a split stance, hold the middle of the resistance band in both hands. Keep a few inches of band between each hand, leaving the handles for your partner.
Hold a handle in each hand and step forward in a split stance until there’s no slack in the band. Your hands should be at chest height, palms facing each other. Press the handles forward one at a time, with a slight palm rotating inward, as you exhale. Return slowly, being careful not to go past your shoulders. Alternate arms each time, completing 20 presses on each arm.
Muscles used: Chest, shoulders.
