Training Tips:

1) Pay attention to the order in which to grab the band with your hands while performing this exercise.  This will ensure that both arms are used effectively in holding the final position for each direction.

2) Isometric exercises are to be done with normal breathing.  Do not hold your breath during the exercises because this may cause a sudden increase in blood pressure and/or light-headedness.

3)  Use a watch or clock with a clearly visible second hand so that you can accurately time your isometric exercises.
