EXERCISE 4

The flex band is a perfect tool for resistance training. Stand on the band and grab the ends with your hands, you can adjust the resistance by wrapping them closer around your hands. Lean forward and have your arms crossed as you pull the band up towards your chest, release back slowly.

 

EXERCISE 5

Lay down on your back. Place the band under your feet and adjust the resistance with how much you wrap the band around your hands. Pull your feet in towards your core at the same time as you sit up with your upper body.
