Place the band around both legs, right above the ankle.
Stand up straight and activate your core. Keep your hand on your hips.
While keeping your legs straight, push one leg back until it is at a 45 degree angle with the floor. Slowly return your active leg to starting position. Repeat.
1. Keep your leg straight as you push it back.
2. Push back from your heel.
3. Try to squeeze your buttocks on the active leg.
4. Avoid arching your back.
If you are able to do more than 10-15 reps, change to a heavier band.
