Stand with feet shoulder width apart and loop a resistance band under your feet, making sure you have the same amount of band on each side. Place your hands on top of your thighs and turn your palms in to face your legs.
Bend your elbows slightly and lift your arms up and forward as high as is comfortable (at least shoulder height but preferably all the way above your head) with your palms facing back down to the ground.
Slowly lower your arms back down to your thighs. Repeat the motion for a set number of repetitions or a set time period. Up and back down is one repetition.
Band Ventral Raises primarily target the deltoids but also engage the trapezius, biceps, and triceps of the upper arm, making this an effective and multipurpose training move for the upper body. This upper body exercise is important for toning and strengthening the arms and shoulders and is a good substitute for Lateral Raises. Band Ventral Raises produce results and are a great move to use in resistance training programs for the upper body.
