BAND SEATED ROW INSTRUCTIONS
1. Sit on the floor with your legs extended, loop the resistance band around the soles of your feet and hold one end in each hand.
2. Pull the band toward your waistline, while squeezing the shoulder blades.
3. Slowly release tension to return to the starting position and repeat.
PROPER FORM AND BREATHING PATTERN
Keep your back straight, your neck relaxed and face forward. Maintain your legs extended with just a slight bend in the knee and keep your shoulders back. Exhale as you pull the band toward the waist and keep the elbows close to your body during the entire exercise.
The band seated row targets the rhomboids and latissimus dorsi, helps sculpt the upper and middle back and promotes good posture. This exercise also engages the biceps and strengthens the core.
