Deltoids (Delts) and Trapezius (Traps)
Deltoids consist of three main areas: front (anterior), lateral (medial) and rear (posterior). Start with a low resistance to enhance your form and avoid injury. Inserting a bar will help to balance the resistance and offer more control. Maintain at least minimal resistance on the bands at all times for a more efficient workout and to minimize the shock to your muscles when beginning the subsequent rep. Hold your rep briefly at the point of maximum resistance for a challenge (Static Contraction Training). If you don’t feel the resistance in your targeted muscle group, readjust the A.P. and/or your distance from the post. As with most exercises, keep your abs tight and back straight to protect and stabilize your core. You will feel great after your workout if you can shoulder the load.
