Lateral Raise with Thera-Band�
|Anatomical drawing of the human upper body musculature system highlighting the deltoid muscle in red.|
Begin by putting the Thera-Band® underneath the chair and grasp one end of the Thera-Band® in each hand. Sit up straight in the chair with your feet flat on the floor and shoulder width apart. Contract your abdominals for trunk stability. Hold the Thera-Band® down at your side with your palms facing in towards your body. Exhale and slowly raise both arms straight out to your side until they are at shoulder height. Inhale as you bring them back down to starting position, lowering them in a slow and controlled manner. Repeat this process 8-12 times for 3 sets.
