This exercise is great if you are looking to tone up your triceps otherwise known as your ‘under-arm’. As distance runners, using bands is great because it creates long, lean muscle.
Preparation: The exercise band should be attached to a pole, door knob, or tree. Start with your knees slightly bent, with your elbows at 90 degrees and in line with your shoulders. To perform this exercise properly, keep your elbows locked in that position at all times.
Execution: Push the handles away from your face, palms always facing forward. Keep those elbows locked.
Notes: Take your time with this exercise. Release the band slowly to prevent using momentum. Perform 10-15 repetitions.
