Low Mount Leg Curls with Band

Starting Position
Make a loop at one end of the band and wrap it around your right ankle. Wrap the opposite end of the band around a low mount like a furniture leg. Lift your right foot off the ground, keeping it flexed with your toes pointing downward.

EXHALE: Curl your right heel up towards your glutes as far as possible. Keep your knees aligned-- and your upper thighs stationary.

INHALE: Slowly return to start without letting your foot rest in between reps. Finish all reps and switch sides to complete one set.

Special Instructions
Make it harder: Stand farther away from the mounted end of the band.
