Resistance Cuff Exercises

LUNGES WITH RESISTANCE CUFF: (12-15 reps per side)

Standing with your Resistance Cuff wrapped around your ankles, place one foot forward.  Legs should be parallel.  Bend front knee so it’s right over ankle, back knee should be right under hips.  Straighten legs and repeat to bent position.  Do same thing with the other leg forward.

SQUATS WITH RESISTANCE CUFF: (14-20 reps / count each squat as a rep)

Standing with Resistance Cuffs around ankles with feet hip distance apart, feet parallel.  Step Right foot out wider than hip distance, both feet should still be parallel. Bend knees into a squat  bringing hips down as close to knee level as possible.  Hands can be on hips, or in front of chest palms together.  Repeat Right foot again with squat.  Repeat with Left foot to the left twice as well, then repeat back on the right.  So, 2 squats to the right, then 2 squats to the left until your fatigued.
