•Choose your band thickness based on your fitness level.
•Wrap your band around a sturdy furniture leg.
•Keeping your head and your chest up, move the resisted leg back as far as you can while keeping the knee and torso straight.
•If you require balance support, use your fingertips on a chair placed in front of you thats positioned slightly off to the side.
•Squeeze those ass cheeks.
•Exhale as you extend your leg behind you and inhale coming back to start.
•This movement should be done slowly and with control.
Instead of counting reps, set a timer and perform for 30-60 seconds on one side then switch legs. Take 60 seconds rest and repeat once or twice more. Notice how your body feels, take all the rest you need and repeat. Just focus on maintaining PROPER FORM and your BREATHING.
The truth is that individual workouts don’t matter much, but regularity does. Specific sets, reps, and weights are all less important than showing up regularly. Remember to always warm-up and stretch first.
