Rearfoot Elevated RDL – Band

  • HOW: Get set up by placing the middle of a band underneath the bottom of one foot. Grab onto that band with both hands. Place the opposite foot up onto an elevated surface behind you with your toes pushing down into it and your knee bent. Stand tall with your arms at your side while having tension in the band. From here, hinge forward at the hips while keeping your back flat. Bring your chest towards the floor without squatting your legs. Once you are as far forward as you can comfortably go, engage your back and glute muscles to push you back into the starting position. 
  • FEEL: You will feel your glutes, low back, and hamstrings muscles working. 
  • COMPENSATION: Don’t use the back leg on the elevated surface, keep that there for balance. Keep your back flat, don’t round it as you hinge forwards.
