Standing Band Row
This is a great exercise for those wanting to work on balance, upper body strength, and posture.
1 - Wrap band around pole, door handle or similar.
2 - Holding handles (or end of band in hands), stand tall, with abdominals engaged and chest lifted. Soften knees slightly to help with balance.
3 - Maintain start posture and pull handles into you. Don't force the squeeze between your shoulder blades, but feel the muscles across your upper back and behind your shoulders engage.
4 - Return hands slowly to start position and repeat the movement for required repetitions.
