1 KNEE IN & KNEE OUT

As­sume a semi-squat po­si­tion with one mini band around or above your knees and one around your wrists, arms straight out in front of you. Keep the ten­sion on the band, your shoul­ders back, chest up and a slight hinge in your hips through­out. Keep­ing your left leg still and your feet firmly planted with your weight in your heels, bring your right knee in and out for 1 minute, then re­peat on the other side.

2 BAND HOLD Y

As­sume a semi-squat po­si­tion with one mini band above your knees and one around your fore­arms. Slowly draw your shoul­derblades down and in, then raise your arms above your head into a Y-shape, keep­ing the ten­sion in the band as you hold for 1 minute. Re­turn to the start­ing po­si­tion.

3 TUBE WALK­ING WITH STRAIGHT LEGS

Stand tall with one mini band around your an­kles and one around your wrists, arms out in front, thumps up. Keep your shoul­ders back and chest up through­out. Use your glutes to step your left leg lat­er­ally to the left, land­ing with the out­side of that foot and keep­ing both feet straight as you fol­low with the right foot. Con­tinue to the left for 1 minute, then re­peat to the right. The band should re­main tight.
