Now, hold the handles of the resistance band with elbows bent by the sides. Place the right foot forward, extend the left arm out in front of the chest, and keep the palms down. Now, switch the legs quickly along with punching the right arm forward. Continue this alternating process as fast as possible for up to a minute. You can also change the intensity of the resistance by moving away or near to the resistance band’s mounting point.

Now, hold the handles with arms extended downwards (by the side). Lower your body and take a squat position by pressing the arms backed by hips and the palms should be up. Quickly jump upwards by keeping your arms in front of your chest. Take the squat position once again and repeat the process as many times as possible in a minute.
- STANDING SWIM: Stand facing the mounting point with your knees slightly bent by holding the handles of the band with the arms extended downwards. Use abs and form a circle with your left arm from front to back, allowing the torso to rotate naturally. Perform this on the opposite side. Keep repeating this alternating process for a minute.
OPPOSITION JACKS: Stand with your feet joined and hold both the ends of the folded band. Pull apart the ends of the resistance band as far as possible, drawing the band inwards towards the chest, and squeezing the shoulder blades together.
