Bands Standing Shoulder Presses


  • Stand with feet shoulder width apart on the middle section of your resistance band.
  • Grasp each handle in each hand and bring your arms with your palms facing out to your shoulder height.
  • Press up bringing your hands together at the top. Do not lock out your elbows.
  • Hold for 1-2 seconds, then release back to the starting position.


  • You may adjust the resistance by taking a wide or narrow stance on the bands. Be sure to keep your back straight and to contract your shoulders at the top of the movement. Use a slow and control manner to perform the exercise.
