Loop a light to moderate band around a light kettlebell, then swing it as fast and smooth as possible. 4 to 5 sets x 5-10 reps is plenty per session.

Sarah’s Short Story
A little over a year ago, Sarah began working with us because she had been experiencing quite a bit of shoulder pain that she had attributed to poor posture, and, surprisingly having been born with an extra rib. She knew she wanted to get stronger to prevent any further deterioration of her bodily health, but to also improve her capacity of working with horses and children at Crystal Peaks Youth Ranch. At her vocation, she knew she had found her dream and calling, now she just needed her body to keep up with her.
We began slowly at first with 1-on-1 Private Training, to ensure that we could get to the root of her movement issues, and built gradually from there, introducing new exercises and greater intensities as her body adapted. Quicker than she imagined, she transitioned to Semi-Private training and soon was craving greater challengers. She decided that, for the first time her life, she wanted to be able to perform a pull up, and eventually work up to running a marathon.
With steady work, and a little bit of enthusiasm, she made “pulling her own weight” completely hers, and is well on her way towards her next goal. Plus, she hasn’t had any issues with her shoulders in a long time.

Skater squats are a variation of the single leg squat that forces a little more quadricep recruitment by requiring the individual to stay more upright through the use of a counter balance. Give these a try to work on your balance and single leg development.
The banded push up is an interesting variation of the weighted push up, in that it makes the easiest part of the movement (the top) the most challenging due to the increase in tension of the band as it stretches against you.
