HOW: Loop a band around the bottom of one of your feet. Hinge forward at the waist and bring the other foot/leg up to where your back is almost parallel with the ground. Find your balance and with the other part of the band in each hand, bring the band up to shoulder height up at a 45 degree angle with the thumb side of your hand facing up. Not straight over head but not straight out to the side, in a diagonal motion. Squeeze your shoulder blades together to separate the band.
FEEL: You should feel your lower body muscles working in the leg balancing. You should also feel your shoulder muscles working.
COMPENSATION: Keep your back flat and hips square, don’t rotate to either side. Don’t bring the bands up over your shoulders.
