Start Position:
  1. Sitting on the floor with your legs bent and heels on the floor.
  2. Wrap the mid-point of the resistance band around the bottom of your feet and grasp one end of the resistance band in each hand.
  3. Lean your body back to 45 degrees with your arms extended in front of you. There should be some tension in the resistance band at this starting position.
End Position:
  1. Body rotated to one side with one hand across your body and the hand with which you are rotating toward, at your hip.
Action:
  1. Rotate your body to one side moving one hand across your body with the hand (the one you are rotating toward) at your hip.
  2. Then, rotate to the other side.
  3. Continue side to side.
  4. Ensure that you maintain the natural curve of your lower back as you perform the exercise. This will be made easier by engaging your core.
Modification Options:
  1. Vary the strength or length of the resistance band to increase/ decrease the difficulty of the exercise.
