Start Position:
  1. In a standing position with your feet shoulder-width apart, place the mid-point of the resistance band under both feet and hold the handles with your hands in front of your shoulders.
  2. Maintain the natural curve in your lower back.
End Position:
  1. Legs bent as low as you can whilst maintaining 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. move your buttocks backwards) and then bend your legs.
  2. Ensure that your knees stay in line with your feet.
  3. Maintain your head in a position in line with your body.
  4. Bend your legs as low as you can whilst maintaining the natural curve of your lower back. Maintaining an active core will assist.
  5. As you return to the start position, start to extend your arms directly above you so that you finish in a position with your arms directly above you in a standing position.
  6. Then, repeat the entire movement.
Modification Options:
  1. Vary the strength or length of the resistance band to increase/ decrease the difficulty of the exercise.
