Place the band around both ankles.
Lie on the floor on your side. Keep your legs straight and hands in front of your body to brace for support.
While pushing your left leg actively into the floor, raise your top leg up against the resistance of the band until your foot is at shoulder height. Slowly lower your leg to starting position. Repeat 10 – 15 times.
Keep both legs straight while performing the exercise. Pushing the left leg actively into the floor will allow you to exercise both legs at the same time.
If you are able to do more than 10-15 reps, change to a heavier band.
