Anterior Step Down – RNT

  • HOW: Start by standing on a step or elevated surface with a band around your knee. The band needs to be looped around just above your knee cap and should be wanting to pull your knee in. Your goal is to push your knee out the entire time while performing this exercise. The other knee should be behind the band. With your leg straight, begin to step forward off of the step and bend the knee that has the band around it. After you’ve reached a spot where you can not bend down anymore, push into the elevated surface and return to the starting position. 
  • FEEL: You should feel your glute and hip muscles working. 
  • COMPENSATION: Keep your back upright as you squat, don’t bend forward too much. Keep the knee that has the band around in line with your hip, don’t let the band pull your knee in.
