G.Y.M. Resistance Band Chest Press Lunge
Resistance Band Chest Press Lunge
Anchor your resistance band and stand facing away from the anchor point in a full, upright, neutral-spine position with one handle in each hand.
Your elbows should start at 90 degrees with your arms parallel. As you step forward into a forward lunge, extend your arms forward, keeping them parallel while maintaining an upright body position.
The temptation will be to lean forward. The weight should transfer to the forward knee.
When returning to the starting position there should not be an abrupt push off from the front foot.
If you are unable to return to the starting position by raising your center for gravity and stepping back, you may not be ready for this exercise. If that is the case, then you should start with your feet together and arms extended in the forward position, and perform a backward lunge bringing your arms to your sides at 90 degrees, then return to the forward arms-extended position. Again, focus should be on maintaining an upright body position.
Complete one set of 20 alternating, followed by one set each of 12 per side. Adjust the resistance of the band to increase the difficulty.
