Start Position:
  1. Lying face-up with legs bent and feet flat on the floor.
  2. Hold the resistance band across your hips with the ends secured to the floor with your hands by your side. There should be some tension in the resistance band at this starting position.
End Position:
  1. Lying face-up with legs bent and feet flat on the floor with hips lifted as high as possible. Your arms remain straight and on the floor.
Action:
  1. Raise the hips as high as possible whilst keeping the shoulders and feet on the floor and the ends of the resistance band on the floor.
  2. Then, lower your buttocks stopping just before touching the floor.
  3. Then, repeat.
Modification Options:
  1. Vary the strength or length of the resistance band to increase/ decrease the difficulty of the exercise.
  2. To further increase the intensity, one leg may be extended ensuring the knees remain level. If you do perform this single-leg option, also repeat on the other leg.
