The shoulder extension exercise performed with a resistance band strengthens the rear-delt and lats. If an elastic band is not available you can use a cable machine. If no equipment is available for your workout a partner can manually apply resistance to your forearm. Concentrate on keeping your torso upright and your arm straight. The shoulder extension exercise is often used in a post-rehabilitation workout routine for strengthening shoulders and increasing mobility.


  • Secure one end of the band and hold the other end in one hand while standing.
  • Face the band’s attachment point and keep your chest up at all time.
  • With the arm straight, pull it back as far as you can without bending or leaning your body.
  • Then lower the arm to the start position.


  • Shrugging the shoulder excessively
  • Hunching forward
  • Leaning forward
