There's a band for everyone

From beginners to elite athletes,
it's easy to find the perfect band for you.

Help me choose

Position yourself in push-up position with hands closer to your body in order to isolate your triceps. Twist a band over, creating an X, and wrap it around your back. Start by lying flat on your stomach with your hands just under your pecs. Push yourself up to a full arm extension.

Tips:

  • Point toes down to help maintain your balance.
  • Remove the band to lower resistance.

Variations:

  1. Place knees on the ground and form a triangle between your torso, arms and the floor.
  2. Position your hands closer together for a challenge.
  3. Hold yourself up in a motionless position, with your body off the ground for an added challenge (static resistance training).
