BANDED GOOD MORNING SQUAT
Targets: Hamstrings and Glutes
Banded Good Morning Squat Step-by-Step Instructions
- Assume athletic stance with feet slightly wider than shoulder width.
- Pick a band that seems challenging, but does not have too much tension . (You can always start with looser band and progress from there.)
- Keeping your back straight and knees behind toes, sink hips back and lower into a squat position.
- Squat down until thighs are parallel to ground (unless movement is restricted).
- Extend hips and knees to drive up out of squat position.
- As you stand back up, go right into a “good morning” exercise by bending forward at the waist while keeping the lower back very flat. You will lower the torso while keeping both legs very straight.
- As your torso reaches parallel with the ground, straighten back up and repeat the exercise from the beginning.
