Split Stance Lunge Turns – Band

  • HOW: Start in a standing position while holding onto each end of a resistance band. Keep your back flat as you step forwards with one leg slightly bending the knee while keeping the other leg straight back for balance support. Keep most of your weight on the front leg and lean forward a bit to point your chest towards the ground. From here,  bring the band up out in front you at chest level. Pull the band out with both hands as you rotate only the upper half of your body to one side. Step forwards with the opposite leg and repeat.  Alternate doing this to both sides for the prescribed amount of reps. 
  • FEEL: You will feel a stretch in your thigh muscles and low back as you rotate to each side. You should also feel your shoulder muscles working while pulling the band out. 
  • COMPENSATION: Don’t let your lower body rotate, only your upper half.
