Exercise execution guide

Starting position

Place the mini-band around both legs above your knees. Stand with your feet about shoulder-width apart.


Keeping your chest up and back straight, brace your core while you drive your hips back into a sitting position. Stretch the band and keep it tight by driving your knees outward throughout the movement. Lower yourself until your thighs are parallel or close to parallel with the ground. Pause and then push yourself back up through your whole foot to the starting position. Keep your knees from caving in at any point during the movement.
