Stretch it by raising the elbow of the highest arm. The other does not move. Do this movement 15 times on one side, then reverse the position of your arms and start again.
Keep your back straight throughout the exercise and blow with each stretch.
Stand up and spread your legs, your feet should be level with your shoulders. Place each end of the elastic in your hands, palms facing the ground. Then slip the elastic under your feet, making sure that the length is equal on each side.
