Working the Upper Back with A Resistance Band
Greetings Fitness Friends,
Behind on days 1-3 on the resistance band/pregnant girls workout?

Day 1: resistance band workout
Day 2: Resistance Band Workout
Day 3: Resistance Band Workout
Today’s Exercise Focuses on the upper back. A reverse fly strengthens the trapezius and rhomboids and posterior deltoid. Having strong back muscles help reduce strain on our back and neck and also help us with our posture.
start with a neutral wrist, hands in line with shoulders and take your arms (straight or slight bend at the elbow) out to be in line with shoulders. Make sure to squeeze your shoulder blades together exhaling during the exertion phase of the exercise and as you release inhaling.
Doing this exercise in reps of 12-15, in 1-3 sets depending on your fitness level
Fitness tip of the Day: Adding isometric holds during our strength training routines are a great way to tone and sculpt the body. Holding the exercise while exhaling in a fixed spot, creates definition strengthening the smaller stabilizer muscles.
Happy Sweating Live Fit, Blessings
