Posterior Step Down – RNT

  • HOW: Place an elevated surface in front of you. Anchor a band above the height of the surface and loop it around the outside knee above the knee cap. With the other leg, step backwards and hinge your upper body forwards.  Bend the knee with the band around it but keep it stable as the band wants to pull it inward. Your goal is to prevent the band from pulling your knee inwards. Tap the foot to the ground and return to the starting position. 
  • FEEL: You should feel your thigh and hip muscles working.
  • COMPENSATION: Don’t let the band pull your knee in, keep it straight.
