Anchor the middle of an exercise band to a secure object. Face away from the anchor point and grasp the handles behind you. Take a step forward with one foot to get into a split stance. Keep your hips and shoulders straight ahead. Stretch the band to create some resistance. Your hands should be at the sides of your chest as in a bench press position. Now press your hands straight in front of you from your chest. Fully extend your arms, then release to bring hands back to your chest and repeat. Do six repetitions with one leg forward, then switch to the other leg forward and do six more repetitions.
