Mini Band Quadruped Straight Leg Lift

To do the Quadruped Straight Leg Lifts, place a mini band around the foot you will keep flexed on the ground and the ankle of the leg you are going to work. Set up on your hands and knees with your knees under your hips and your hands under your shoulders. Your feet should be flexed.

Straighten the leg with the mini band around the ankle out behind you. Keeping your foot flexed, lift your straight leg up toward the ceiling. Squeeze your glute and lift your leg until it is parallel to the ground. Only lift higher if you feel your glute working and not your low back. Lower the leg back down to the ground and repeat. Lift the leg straight up and squeeze the glute at the top.

Hold for a second or two and repeat. Complete all reps on one side before switching. Make sure to keep your hips square to the ground as you lift. Also, do not bend your arms.
