Instructions: How To

This exercise combines core stabilization with glute activation, making it an excellent compound movement for building core strength and enhancing posterior chain engagement. The straight leg kickback, intensified by the mini loop band, challenges stability and strengthens the glutes and lower back, offering a more comprehensive workout than a traditional plank.

  1. Place your hands on the floor and extend your arms directly underneath your shoulders with a band wrapped around both ankles.
 Raise your hips and knees off the floor to create a straight line from your ankles to your shoulders.
 Raise your right heel off the floor as your keep your right leg extended.
 Control the movement back to the starting position and repeat with the opposite side.
