Front Shoulder Raises with Mini Stepper

Starting Position
Stand tall on the mini stepper, holding the handles of the resistance bands in each hand. Keep your back straight, abs engaged, knees soft, arms in front of the thighs, and palms facing your body.

EXHALE: Keeping arms straight (but not locked), slowly raise your arms up in front of you until their reach chest or shoulder height. INHALE: Slowly lower your straight arms back to the front of the thighs (starting position) to complete one rep. Repeat.

Special Instructions
Perform this exercise with or without the lower body stepping motion. Do not lean back or arch your back as you raise and lower your arms. Keep your wrists straight and in line with the forearm, not bent. Move at your own pace, ensuring you are balanced, exercising at your own level, and maintaining good form and control with the arms.
