Start Position:
  1. Start in a standing position with your feet wide apart with your knees in line with your feet.
  2. Extend your arms in front of you with one end of the resistance band in each hand. The resistance band should be held in a horizontal position with tension at this starting position.
End Position:
  1. Legs bent as low as you can whilst maintaining the natural curve of your lower back with your knees in line with your feet.
  2. The resistance should be pulled apart.
Action:
  1. Start by bending at your hips (i.e. move your buttocks backwards) and then bend your legs.
  2. Ensure that your knees track in line with your feet.
  3. Maintain your head in a position in line with your body.
  4. Bend your legs as much as you can as you pull the resistance band apart.
  5. Then, return to the start position and repeat.
Modification Options:
  1. Vary the strength or length of the resistance band to increase/ decrease the difficulty of the exercise.
