Shoulder Flexion Strengthening with a Therapy Band

Securely attach a therapy band around your right foot. Stand in a neutral position and grasp the therapy band handle in your right hand. Your right thumb is on top, toward the ceiling.

Next, keeping your right elbow straight, raise your right arm forward to a 90-degree angle [this is flexion]. You'll feel the muscular contraction in the front of your right upper arm and shoulder. Relax and return to the starting position.
