Resistance-Band Shoulder Press to Uppercut Punch

Stand on the band with both feet to anchor it, grab it with both hands so there’s equal tension on either side, and start with your arms bent and hands just outside your shoulders. This is a two-part exercise: (1) Perform a shoulder press with your palms facing forward. (2) After lowering your hands back down, bring your arms in front of you so that your palms and forearms are facing you, and press straight up from there to full elbow extension. The second part is the “uppercut punch,” which is a similar motion to the “Arnold press.” One shoulder press and one uppercut punch equals one rep.
