Squats with Band

Squats with band resistance strengthen the lower body, more specifically the quads and hamstrings. This movement is a strong option for beginners learning to adapt to resistance.

    Sit back onto your heels and squat down until your thighs are parallel to the ground. Exhale and return back to starting position.

Trainer’s Tips

  • Avoid allowing the band to pull your upper body forward during the exercise. Keep your chest up and shoulders back throughout the movement.
  • Avoid overarching the neck during the exercise. Keep your head in a straight line with the rest of your body.
  • Do not let the knees cave inward during the squat. Force the knees out and over the feet the entire time.
