WHY: This exercise is great for single leg balance and strength as well is activating the Gluteal, AKA the butt muscles.
HOW: In a standing position place a resistance band just above the knees. From here stabilize your body weight onto one leg. Bring the opposite leg back and to the side while spreading the band. You want to keep in a mini squat position with the leg that is on the floor.
FEEL: You should feel this exercise in your leg muscles, particularly your Buttock (Glute) muscles. Make sure the band is flat on your leg and not scrunched up. If the band is irritating you place it over your shorts.
