Establishing a stable core is a priority for many individuals (and not just including athletes), because our core is the foundation from which our movement begins. This movement helps to activate the deep core stabilizers and your obliques, which help to keep your spine and lower back stable through rotational movements. Additionally, this variation helps to develop single leg stability and strength, which can carry over into walking and running.
Start with one knee down closer to the attachment point of a resistance band. Keep the core in a neutral position (pull your belly button in and squeeze your glutes), and bring the resistance band to your chest. Press the band away from you, while keeping your core neutral and avoid letting the band pull you across your body.
Make sure you are breathing through this exercise, as well!
