Strong Back / Strong Legs
Exercise bands are one of my favorite pieces of equipment because they are so versatile and portable. This multi-taking move not only works your back and all muscles in your lower body but it also challenges your balance. When doing the lunge be sure to step back with your feet hips distance apart and remember to activate your back muscles when you being the row.
Do it Right
- Begin standing w/ feet hips distance apart, holding an exercise band (that is secured at approximately chest height) w/ palms facing each other and arms extended forward
- Pull exercise band back with your right hand while simultaneously stepping your left foot back bending both knees to lower body down as far as possible or until left knee is close to but not touching the floor
- Exhale, extend both knees & step left foot back while extending right arm to return to starting position
- Switch & repeat the movement on the other side to complete 1 rep
