Muscles Worked: Quadriceps, glutes, hamstrings, biceps.

Starting Position: Stand on the resistance band with your feet shoulder width apart and hold the handles in each hand to your side with your elbows bend at 90-degrees.

Action: Move your body into a squatting position while keeping your back as straight as possible. Continue squatting as low as you can until your knees are bent at 90-degrees. Do not go any lower.

Slowly stand back up into the starting position.


1.     Straighten your arms to decrease the tension in the resistance band. Bend your arms past 90-degrees to increase the resistance in the band.

2.     Avoid holding your breath or straining when standing back up.
