Place the Mini Band around your knees, stand shoulder wide apart, engage your core and squat down. As you change directions and come back up make sure to press away the floor and drive your hip to the front. Squeeze your glutes at the top of the exercise. Make sure you’re rotation your knees away from your body throughout the exercise.

TRAIN WITH tip: By pressing the Mini Band away from the center of your body you’re working the sides of your glutes a little extra.

 

2. SLIDER SIDE LUNGE
