The move: Seated row with rotation
Tie the band to a stationary object at about waist height. (When you're seated, the band will be at about chest height.) Sit on a bench or stability ball, holding one end in right hand. Keep hips facing band, but rotate torso slightly to the left. Pull right hand back, grazing elbow behind rib cage.
