Special Offer

3. Tube Rows
Wrap tubing or stretchy bands around a post or doorknob and grab the ends. Straighten your arms in front of you, palms down. Stand tall with a slight bend in your knees. Keep abs in, shoulders back, chest lifted. Exhale and pull the grips toward your chest, squeezing shoulder blades together as you pull. Without leaning forward or releasing your shoulder blades, straighten your arms to the start and repeat.

Make it Harder: Stretch the band more tightly at the start of the exercise.
