Instructions: How To

Targeting the posterior chain, including the hamstrings, glutes, and lower back, this variation uses a loop band to add resistance to the hinge movement. The band's tension increases as you stand, mimicking the resistance profile of traditional weightlifting while being gentler on the lower back. This exercise improves flexibility, strength, and posture, making it a valuable addition to lower body and core training routines.

  1. Stand on one end of a loop band and hold onto the other end with both hands. 
  2. Adjust how much tension is on the band.
  3. Keep your core engaged and back straight. 
  4. Hinge your hips back, and allow your knees to bend slightly. 
  5. Pause for a moment when you feel a stretch in your hamstrings. 
  6. Drive your hips forward by engaging your glutes and hamstrings
  7. Return to the starting position.
