Starting position

Position the mini-band around your legs just above your knees. Lay down on your side. Keeping your feet in line with your hips, bend your knees to make a 90-degree angle. Rest your head on your arm.


Keeping your core engaged and your feet together, raise your top knee up as high as you can without lifting the bottom knee from the floor or twisting your hips. Pause and return to the starting position in a controlled manner. Finish your repetitions and repeat on the opposite side.
