• Begin by placing your hands in the desired easy grip loops. • Tip: Typically your hands are about 2 to 3 loops apart. • Place the CLX around your upper back and adjust your hands so that you have an open handed grip and palms are prone. • Abduct your shoulders about 60° and bend your elbows about 45°. • Keeping your arms raised and in position, push your arms forward and inward as if you were giving someone a hug. • When your hands cross slightly in the middle, hold briefly and then slowly return to the starting position. Tip: Avoid shrugging shoulders to perform exercise. *Do not exceed 300% elongation. Some exercises may require longer lengths of CLX.
