You want to lift and tone your rear? Try this exercise on for size. You’ll feel it right away, especially in combination with other lower body exercises done the same day!


Grab your exercise band and go to the floor. Take both ends of the band in one hand and loop the same side foot in the band. (Be sure the band is nice and WIDE across the middle of the foot)

Place your hands on the floor a little wider than shoulder-width apart. Keep the lower abs and back nice and tight. Don’t let them arch up or sink down. (To modify, hold the band closer to the middle of your body as opposed to directly under your shoulders)

Extend the leg that has the band straight behind you. Think “up and out” with the heel. Control the leg back in and repeat. Hold onto that band tight!!

If you really want to get crazy, pop up to your toes instead of resting on your knees. Yikes!

Do 2 sets of 10-12 extensions (each leg)
