Seated Row

Works upper and middle back, shoulders, and biceps

Sit on floor with legs extended in front of you, back straight. Wrap an exercise band around the bottoms of your feet and hold ends in hands, arms extended in front of you. Pull abs in and then pull your hands toward your waist, stretching the band, while keeping back straight. Return to starting position and repeat 10-12 times. Once you can do this, add another set of 12 reps.
