Step 1: Wrap the resistance band around your ankles. While keeping your knees and hips bent slightly and your abs tight, contract your glutes to slowly “kick” the working leg back in a semicircular arc as high as it will comfortably go as you breathe out.
Tip: At full extension, squeeze your glutes for a second in order to achieve a peak contraction.
Step 2: Now slowly bring your working leg forward, resisting the pull of the cable until you reach the starting position. Repeat for the recommended amount of repetitions.
Modification: Drop the band or lean some of your body weight against the wall for support.
