Instructions

Stand with feet shoulder width apart and loop an exercise band under both feet, making sure you have the same amount of band on each side. Keep your arms by your sides and your palms facing back behind you. Lift your arms up and out to your sides as high as is comfortable (around shoulder height), keeping arms as straight as possible and your palms facing back behind you. Slowly lower your arms back down to your sides, then repeat the motion for a set number of repetitions or a set time period. Up and back down is one repetition.

Purpose of the exercise

Band Lateral Raises with Palms Back is a variation of a traditional lateral raise that primarily targets the rear deltoids, triceps, and the trapezius, making this a great comprehensive upper body exercise. This exercise is particularly useful for those who want to tone or strengthen the rear deltoid, a typically hard area to target. Anyone looking to add definition or size to their rear deltoids should add this exercise into their regular resistance training routine.
