Lying Front Shoulder Raise With Bands
Area Targeted: Front Shoulder
Lying Front Shoulder Raise With Resistance Tube Bands is the perfect exercise if you want to work your Anterior Deltoid (Front Shoulder) without compressing your spine. This can be especially beneficial for individuals with Spine Issues. Since the floor stabilizes your body, you are able to isolate your Front Shoulder and avoid Spinal Compression.
Anchor: Secure the band(s) to the door with the door anchor at the bottom of the door.
Bands: Attach each end of the band(s) to a handle.
Body Positioning: Grip a handle in each hand, palms facing down and lay on your back facing the door, 3 to 4 feet away from the door. Keep your feet flat on the floor, knees up, legs apart and arms straight in between your legs with palms down.
Raise your arms up, and away from the door until your hands are directly above your chest. Return to the starting position (controlling the resistance). Repeat.
POINTS TO REMEMBER
1. Keep your hands close together and arms straight as you raise your arms.
