Training with bands is becoming increasingly popular as research continues to show how effective they can be either on their own or when combined with traditional workout methods. The number of exercises you can do with bands and their versatility are almost limitless. Try this version of the Arnold Press with the new M & F Strength Bands (available at muscleandfitness.com).

TARGET: Delts (front and middle heads)

MOVE:You can do this exercise either seated or standing, pressing with one arm at a time or two. Stand erect on one band using
a hip-width stance, making sure the length of the band is evenly distributed on each side of your body. Grasp the handles at shoulder level with your palms facing you. Press one handle overhead, simultaneously rotating your wrist so your thumbs turn in. Your arm should be fully extended with your palm facing out at the top. Reverse the movement to return to the start and repeat with the other arm. Do three sets of 10–15 reps per arm.
