HOW: Start by lying on your back. Bring your knees up towards your chest and bend your knees making an “L” shape. Grab a band that is anchored behind you with both hands and while keeping your elbows straight, pull it over your head stopping at your chest. While holding the tension from the band, straighten both legs out until it is a few inches off of the ground, and return to the starting position.
FEEL: You should feel your core muscles working as well as your lats and arm muscles.
COMPENSATION: Keep your core engaged during the process, don’t arch your back. Keep your arms straight up at chest level and don’t bend your elbows. Don’t let your leg rest on the ground as you straighten it.
