Tip: Do Band Pull Aparts Before You Bench Press

IBand pull aparts are a great exercise. They work the upper back, shoulders, scapula & more.

I recommend these as part of your bench press warm up.

Begin with your arms extended straight out in front of you, holding the band with both hands.

Initiate the movement by performing a reverse fly motion, moving your hands out laterally to your sides.

Keep your elbows extended as you perform the movement, bringing the band to your chest.

Ensure that you keep your shoulders back during the exercise.

Pause as you complete the movement, returning to the starting position under control.

You don’t need a lot of resistance with these starting off.  Over time you can increase the band resistance but these do not need to be hard or heavy or demanding.

Give them a try.
