How to Do Standing Band Front Raise

If any pain is experienced, immediately stop the standing band front raise.

Beginning

Beginning Front Raise Resistance Band

Step on the resistance band with both hands and grab it. And extend your arms straight up till your hands are just over your shoulders. Don't go much higher than that because it will put additional strain on your shoulder joints and traps.

Movement

Front Raise Resistance Band Movement

1. Find a fixed point that’s very low to the ground to attach the band or tubing.

2. With your feet slightly wider than shoulder-width, face the anchor point for your tubing and pick up the handle in both hands.

3. Both arms should be fully extended, with your palms facing the floor and your wrists in line with your forearms. Make sure that your back is straight and tilt forward slightly at the hips.

4. Tighten up your core to support your back and spine, then raise your arms upward until they are directly over your head while straightening up at the hips. Your arms will still be fully extended, with your wrists in line with your forearms.

5. Bring your arms back to your sides.

6. Remember not to use momentum to lift the weight, and avoid pushing the stomach or hips forward to make the lift. Make sure that you don’t arch our round your back at any time during the exercise.
