Start: Loop one end of a Superband around the other on a secure object overhead, such as a chinup bar. Grab the band with each hand, about 2 inches apart and stand with your back to the anchor point. Stand in a staggered stance, one foot in front of the other. Keeping your lower back naturally arched, lean forward at your hips until your torso forms a 45-degree angle with the floor.

Movement: Hold the band behind your head, with each elbow bent 90 degrees. Without moving your upper arms, push your forearms forward until your elbows are completely straight. Pause, then return to the starting position.
