From the Manual: Overhead Triceps Extensions

Try this exercise with free weights and then compare it with the burn you get from using resistance bands, we dare ya! The bands work wonders with any overhead movement, and this one no different. Be sure to maintain good form throughout by keeping your elbows in and using them as a fulcrum; don’t give in to temptation to compensate with your shoulders, forearms and core. Take a look at this page from the manual to see what this looks like and how to do the exercise.

This page from the manual shows a bunch of different ways to perform the traditional shoulder exercise. Using bands for this exercise also takes some unnecessary strain off of the shoulders and neck area that would be present with free weights.

Today’s exercise from the Rubberbanditz Exercise Library works the most glamorous muscle group – the biceps. The bandbell curl is a great way to get a workout for your biceps throughout the whole range of motion, as gravity won’t jerk the band the way it will with free weights. The most important thing is to maintain a smooth, controlled movement both up and down. If you do, resistance bands can provide an amazing workout to get you turning heads in no time.

Too intense for regular curls? Try doing 21’s. They’ll get you the burn you desire.
