This week on the <<>> BLOG <<>> I am sharing a few coaching and training tips on band pull aparts! These are amazing for building a ton of strength and stability in everything surrounding and supporting the scapula, shoulder girdle, and thoracic spine. Do these often and add these into warm ups, skill/strength work, conditioning, accessory work, finishers, etc.
Grip the band with your hands set about shoulder width
Point thumbs up
Set arms parallel with the floor
Pull shoulder down and back
Focus eyes straight ahead
Compress your ribs toward your hips
Squeeze your glutes
Straighten and engage legs
Pull the band apart finishing with your arms in a T-position
Return to start position slow and controlled
