Duration: 1 minute, 4 seconds

Whenever possible, I like to combine the upper body with the lower body. The upper body is connected to the lower body, and especially in the back that doesn't get as much work as the front.

I really like to try and coordinate the lower body with the upper, and I find that tooling with the squat a very effective tool. If you simply just hang on to the tubing, you'll find that your upper lats and your upper back are already working.

So if you just have it at a nice contraction point and then you start doing your squat by bending from the waist and getting that nice forward, that nice backward motion, you'll find that the two are coordinated really quite well.

The focal point is always your gluteal muscles in the bum, getting all the weight down into that area so when you come back up, you simply just keep the tubing at a nice contracted point back down with the lower body again, back up again. Repetitions can be 10 to 15, 15 to 20. You just wanna make sure that you focus on getting the burn in the right muscle group.
