Squat and Press with Resistance Band

| Fitness Index


Move Targets: Glutes, Quads and Shoulders


Step 1: Grab the handles with either hand and step onto the band so it sits right under the arch of the foot. Have your feet about hip-width apart. Face the palms forward.


Step 2: Drop down into a squat so the hips are just above or at knee-height. This is more of a dip than a squat because you're trying to gain as much power as you can to boost yourself back up for the press.


Step 3: Drive through your heels, keep your hands at shoulder height until you're halfway up. Push your hands up, keeping the elbows soft (slightly bent) at the top. Immediately drop down into your squat again to start the next rep.
