If you're looking for a way to tone up your core and thighs, grab a resistance band and give this move a try. It may not seem like you're doing much, but after a few reps, you'll start to feel the burn.
For step-by-step instructions on how to do this exercise, keep reading.
- Sit on the floor in a half boat position, balancing on your bum. Your feet should be together, and about one foot off the floor.
- Wrap the band over your quads and under your hamstrings, forming an X with the band. Hold on to either end of the band, close enough that you feel some resistance.
- Engage your abs and keep your back straight and chest lifted. Pull on the band as you push your legs out to the sides, then bring them back in. This counts as one rep. Adjust the band if you need more or less resistance.
- Do three sets of 15 reps without lowering your legs.
