7 Stretch Band Exercises for your Legs

7 Stretch Band Exercises for your Legs


Before beginning tie your stretch band around
your thighs. Be sure to use a double knot to secure the band. For knee ups stand with
your legs shoulder width apart and lift your knee up in the air alternate your legs each
time. For added intensity hold your knee up for at least one second. For squats stand with your legs shoulder width apart and sit back like there is a chair behind you. Keep your back straight and make sure your knees do not go past your toes. I you are not comfortable, you can always add a chair for more support. For the standing leg extension fully extend your leg in front of you if you need extra support use a chair, wall, or table. For the lateral band walk step to the side and squat, repeat on the other side. For the duck walk lower yourself into a squatting position and take two steps forward, then two steps backward. For the lying hip abduction, lie on your side using your elbows for support, lift your leg
in the air then bring it back down. Remember to stay controlled and engage your core and
your glutes. Do not forget to switch sides. For the glute bridge lie on your back with
your knees bent use your legs and glutes to push your hips up, for extra support try putting
your hands underneath your body. As with any exercise check first with your doctor before beginning.
