Start Position:
  1. Stand in an upright position with your feet shoulder-width apart maintaining the natural curve in your lower back.
  2. Place the mid-point of the resistance band under both feet and hold one end in each hand.
End Position:
  1. Bent forward as low as you can whilst maintaining a slight bend at your knees and the natural curve of your lower back.
  2. There should be some tension in the resistance band at this end position.
Action:
  1. Start by bending at your hips (i.e. stick your butt out) and bend your legs slightly.
  2. Ensure that your knees stay in line with your feet as you continue to bend forward (hinge forward at the hips) until your chest is almost parallel with the floor with your shoulders drawn back. Ensure you continue to engage your core to maintain the natural curve of your lower back.
  3. Maintain your head in a position in line with your body.
  4. Then, return to the start position and repeat.
Modification Options:
  1. Vary the strength or length of the resistance band used to increase/ decrease the difficulty of the exercise or shorten the loop being used to increase the difficulty.
