Anchor a band to a stable structure in front of you at floor level. Grab the band in both hands so that there’s equal tension on either side, and step back from the anchor to create tension in the band. Start with your knees slightly bent, your chest up, your arms extended downward and in front of you, and your hands a few inches apart. Perform a row by contracting your back muscles to pull your hands to your navel. As you pull, turn your palms upward to enhance the contraction in your back muscles. At the top of the rep, your hands should be right at your sides, just above your hips. Squeeze the contraction, then slowly lower back down. Keep your body stationary throughout.
