Secure the band(s) to the door with the door anchor at the bottom of the door.

Body Positioning: Attach the ankle strap around one ankle (with the ring on the back of your ankle). Stand 3 to 4 feet away from the door, with your back to the door.

Place your hands on your hips or use a stationary object for balance. Stand up tall with your back straight, head straight and chest up.

Points To Remember:
1. Keep your thigh up, parallel with the floor throughout the movement
