Step-by-step instructions

1. Attach two bands to sturdy objects at shoulder height that face each other. Stand between them and hold an end in each hand. Raise your arms out 90 degrees with elbows extended—you should still feel some tension on the band in this starting position.
2. Curl the bands toward your ears and hold the contracted position for two seconds. That's one rep. (This exercise can also be done using adjustable cables.)
