This is a weekly series on exercise that will give you the biggest bang for your exercise buck in and out of the gym. Today’s exercise is the band supported leg lowering.
You should do this because- it helps lengthen those hips and hamstrings that can get ‘tight’ from too much sitting. This is the perfect warm up exercise for squats and deadlifts too.
 
Makes your everyday life easier because- Helps even up strength imbalances that exist between our left and right legs due to activities of daily living. Oh, and it feels great also.

Form tips – Watch the video (thanks to Molly Galbraith)Keep the band tight, legs straight and breathe out as you lower the leg towards the floor. Do 10 reps on each leg.
