Core Knowledge


Squat - Mini Band


  • Stand with a mini band looped around your knees, arms at your sides, and feet shoulder-width apart.
  • Initiating movement with your hips, squat back and down until your thighs are parallel to the floor.
  • Stand up by pushing through your hips.
  • Continue for the full set.

Coaching Tips

  • Keep your knees behind your toes.
  • Keep tension on the mini band so that your knees do not collapse to the inside.
  • Extend your arms in front of you to sit back more comfortably.
  • Keep your chest up and your back flat.

Feel It

  • Working your glutes, hamstrings, and quads.
