Instructions: How To

Incorporating the wide stance of the sumo deadlift, this variation uses a loop band to provide resistance, targeting the glutes, hamstrings, and inner thighs. It's an effective lower body exercise that also engages the lower back and core, improving posture, strength, and flexibility. The loop band allows for a controlled lift, reducing strain on the spine compared to traditional weights.

  1. Stand with your feet as wide as comfortably possible with toes pointed slightly outward.
  2. Loop the band under both feet and ensure there is tension in the band at the starting position.
  3. Bend forward and grip the middle of the band at points that are shoulder width apart.
  4. Embrace your core and keep your upper body around 45 degrees from the ground.
  5. Pull the band upwards until you are standing upright.
  6. Return to the starting position and repeat.
