Start Position:
  1. Start in a straddle stance with your front leg reasonably straight (maintain a slight bend) with the majority of your weight on this front leg. The back leg will be straight.
  2. Your body should be close to vertical – a slight bend forward is good whilst maintaining the natural arch in your lower back.
  3. Hold one end of the resistance band in each hand with your arms extended in front of you. The resistance band should be held in a horizontal position with tension at this starting position.
End Position:
  1. The front leg will be bent to approximately 90 degrees with the majority of your weight on this leg and the back knee lowered to a position close to the floor.
  2. In this lowered position, your front knee should be in line with your foot.
  3. Your body should be rotated to the front leg side with the resistance band pulled apart.
  1. Bend your front leg as you lower the back knee toward the floor. As you bend, turn your body toward the front-leg side whilst you pull the resistance band apart.
  2. Ensure you maintain an active core throughout the movement.
  3. Return to the starting position, then repeat.
  4. Once you have completed your set on one side, repeat on the other side.
Modification Options:
  1. Vary the strength or length of the resistance band to increase/ decrease the difficulty of the exercise.
