SETUP: Attach a band to a solid surface at glute level and step into the band, wrapping it around your waist. Take a step forward to create tension in the resistance band, and keep your toes pointing straight forward. As always, keep your shoulders pinned back & chest up for good posture.
REP: The key to this exercise is “control down, explode up!” Reach toward the ground then explode up by pushing your feet into the ground and driving your hips forward, squeezing your glutes at the top of the rep. Push your butt back as you lower, creating a stretch in your hamstrings.
TIP: While this motion appears similar to a Stiff Leg Deadlift, in action it more closely resembles a Kettlebell Swing or a Hip Thrust. Look at the pause & squeeze I get at the top of each rep, THAT’S the idea.
