Exercise execution guide

Starting position

Position the mini-band around both legs above your knees. Lay flat on your back on the mat. Bend your knees and bring your feet towards you, plant them flat on the ground. Lay your arms out straight at your sides with palms facing down.


Driving through your heels, lift your hips off of the ground until your knees, hips, and shoulders create a straight line. Squeeze your glutes and keep your core braced. Pause and then lower your hips back to the starting position. Keep the mini-band tight and stretched throughout the whole movement.
