Add an Exercise Band

Get Fit Quick Tip:

Add an Exercise Band to your Lunge!

Hold both ends of the exercise band securely with each hand. Place your right foot on top of the band, so the band is securely under your arch. Step back with your left foot about 3 feet, so your right knee is directly over your right ankle. Bend both arms and hold the band into your body. Next, bend both knees and lower your body down toward the floor 10-12 inches. Straighten both knees to complete one rep. Do 10-12 reps with your right leg forward. To release, straight both arms and bend forward to put slack on the band, then carefully step off of the band. Repeat placing your left foot on the band.

*This exercise is for intermediate/advanced exercisers without injury considerations.

**Consult your physician before performing exercise.

Build strong legs and core!

Strong Legs and Core

Build stronger legs and a stronger core with this one move. Begin on your hands and knees. Place your hands directly below your shoulders, and your knees directly below your hips. Keeping your torso stable, lift and extend one leg so it is parallel to the floor. Lower your toes to the floor, then lift about 12 inches. Perform 10-15 reps lifting each leg.
