Hip Extensions

Area Targeted: Butt (Gluteus Maximus)

Set up:
Secure the band(s) to the door with the door anchor at the bottom of the door.
Clip Bands & Handle Bands: Attach both ends of the band to one ankle strap.
Body Positioning:
 Secure the ankle strap around the ankle of your active leg, with the ring in the front. Stand 3 to 4 feet away from the door while facing the door, with both legs even (side by side). If necessary, place a chair beside you to use for balance. Keep your back straight, head straight and stomach tight.

Movement: While keeping your active leg straight, push your leg back (10 to 12 inches), squeezing your buttocks.

Points To Remember: Push your active leg back from your heel.
