Step on the band with both feet. Grasp the upper part of the band with both hands.
Stand up straight, feet shoulder width apart. Keep your chest up, back
straight and head straight. Activate your core. Your hands push up into the band, wrists point towards the ceiling. Start with your arms at shoulder height.
Squat down to a 90 degree angle or until your body naturally stops. Push your hands into the band and to the ceiling when you get up and bring them down to shoulder height when you’re squatting down. Repeat for 10 – 15 times.
1. Keep your chest up and your core engaged throughout the entire movement and
avoid rounding or arching your back.
2. Extend the arms fully when you get up.
3. Keep most of the weight in your heels.
4. Don’t let your knees come in, but also make sure that you don’t push past your toes as you lower into your squat.
If you are able to do more than 10-15 reps, change to a heavier band.
