Instructions: How To

Performed standing, this variation targets the hamstrings with the added challenge of maintaining balance, engaging the core and stabilizer muscles. The loop band provides adjustable resistance, allowing for a focused workout on the hamstrings while also improving posture and functional strength. It's versatile and suitable for a range of fitness levels, offering benefits

  1. Secure the loop band to a stable anchor, and around one ankle.
  2. Step back so there is a bit of tension on the band, and stand with your feet roughly shoulder width apart.
  3. Keep your core engaged, back straight, and chest up to maintain proper form and posture throughout this exercise.
  4. Shift your weight to the leg without the band attached, and raise your leg with the band just off the ground.
  5. Engage your hamstrings and glutes to flex your knee and fold your leg underneath you.
  6. Hold this position for a moment at the top of the movement.
  7. Slowly return your leg to the starting position while maintaining tension in your hamstrings.
  8. Switch sides, and repeat.
