Side-Lying Single-Leg Press

Step 1

With a recovery band looped around one foot, lie on your side lengthways along a yoga mat, with your legs stacked on top of one another. Firmly hold each end of the band at chest height. Ensure that the recovery band is in good condition and securely anchored around the middle of your foot to avoid injury. This is your starting position.

Step 2

Inhale and brace your core as you bend your knee towards your chest, stopping just above hip height. Exhale and keeping your foot flexed, push the band away from your chest to return to the starting position. You should feel tension in your glutes and quadriceps as you do this. Repeat for the specified number of repetitions or time on each side.
