Place the band around both legs, right above the ankle.
Stand up straight, feet hip with apart, and hands on hips. Activate your core muscles.
While keeping both knees in one line, pull the heel of one leg up against the
resistance of the band until your lower leg is parallel to the floor. Slowly return your leg to the starting position. The exercise is like a biceps curl for your leg. Repeat 10 – 15 times.
Do not push the knee of the working leg back. Keep your knees in one line during the
entire exercise. Ideally you only move the lower leg while the upper leg stays still.
Also, keep your foot relaxed as your pull your heel up.
If you are able to do more than 10-15 reps, change to a heavier band.
