Banded Pull Aparts

 

Babywearing Option: Back carry would be appropriate for this movement.  Front carry may be awkward to pull the band apart.

Points of Performance:

1. Starting with the band at roughly shoulder level, pull each end of the band apart from one another, keeping the hands around shoulder level. 

2. There may be a tendency to want to lift the chest towards the band, but try to avoid this by exhaling as you pull.

3. If you cannot avoid lifting the chest, spread your hands farther apart on the band, or decrease the resistance band intensity.
