Power Band Warm Up

Hints & Tips

This week it is all about the Power Band – You will no doubt have already used it in the studio but it is also great to have at home. Commonly the band is used for firing up your hips (& glutes) which is the main mover in squatting, lunging and assists in stabilising your core.  Often the hips are asleep, technically known as gluteal amnesia, especially as we sit at computers. The act of this exercise is to bring the band under the arches of your feet and hold tight at chest height, take small steps to the left between 10 to 20, then to the right, then forwards and backwards.  You will definitely feel this working in your hips! Make sure you keep your hips and pelvis in an upright position – not tilting forward.
