|This exercise is great for glut and quad strengthening, while challenging core control and stability. You can use it as an alternative to the leg press pin-loaded machine, especially when recovering from a lumbar disc injury or when you dont have access to a gym with equipment. Use a 41" powerband with at least 1" width for resistance.|
Loop the band around a high fixed object like a bar. Hold onto either the same bar or a fixed structure. Put the front foot into the band under the arch of your foot. Extend the hip and knee together to stretch band until your leg is straight, really focusing on maximally squeezing the glut muscle, and keepin gthe spine in neutral. Slowly return to the start position and repeat.
Do not allow the spine to arch when you extend the leg, keep it in neutral.
