With legs extended, place the center of the band behind the soles of your feet. Grab the band with both hands, arms extended and palms facing each other. Sitting nice and tall, bend at the elbow and pull the band toward your core, squeezing your shoulder blades together. Slowly return to starting position and repeat for 10 to 12 reps.

Stand with feet shoulder-width apart with your feet placed over the middle of the band. Grab a handle in each hand, starting with your arms down at your sides. With palms facing in front of you, pull your arms toward your shoulders by bending at the elbow until you get a good bicep contraction. Slowly lower back down and go for a total of 12 to15 curls.

Seated Abdominal Twist (3 sets of 10-12)


Sit on the ground. Place the tubing under the arch of both feet. Hold the band your palms together facing inwards towards one another.

Turn your body to one side then return to the center. Then turn to the other side and return to the center. Make sure that you are only turning at your core, and do not use your arms to assist you.
