Band Pull Apart Overview

If you're looking for a workout that targets multiple muscle groups and gets your heart rate up, you can't go wrong with a pull-apart with a resistance band. This exercise is ideal for beginners and experts alike, and it can be performed anywhere with minimal equipment. Plus, it's a great way to improve your posture and prevent injuries. It also enhances your range of motion and flexibility.

How to Do

  • Use a resistance band that provides sufficient resistance.
  • Anchor the band around a sturdy object at about chest height.
  • Grasp the band with your palms facing each other, and step away from the anchor point until there is tension on the band.
  • Keeping your shoulders down and your core engaged, exhale as you slowly pull the band apart, maintaining tension on the band throughout the movement. Pull it till it nearly touches your chest
  • Inhale as you return to the starting position.

Exercise Tips

  • Maintain a neutral spine throughout the movement.
  • Make sure your head does not get forward.
  • In order to target your upper back, keep a slight bend in your elbows.
  • If you wish to intensify the workout, try to focus on pushing your hands apart after you have pulled the band apart.
