How To: Side Band Raise

Tone and strengthen your shoulders with the side band raise.

How to do it: Stand on the middle of a band, with your feet close together. Hold one handle in each hand, palms facing your thighs. Lift your arms out and up to your sides, forming a letter “T” with your body. Slowly lower back to the starting position and repeat.

Tip: Keep a slight bend in your elbows as you perform this move. Top tip: Focus on your form. Do not allow your body to sway back or forth as you raise your arms.
