In this clip we're going to be doing a prone side raise with the exercuff. Since we are going to be on the mat I would do this in a seated position and you are going to rotate around and come down in a prone position, knees on the mat, hands firmly placed on the mat. Now there is a hand option and if this bothers your hands and your wrists and your shoulders you can always come down into a plank position with your forearms and elbows firmly on the mat or you can even ball up your fists. So those are our options if it tends to bother your wrists or your shoulders or even your hands, some of us have carpal tunnel. Now we are going to start off in the advanced option with knees on the ground and knees to the side. This is a nice twist to the traditional side raise because you have the extra resistance of the exer band so it is going to increase how this feels in the quads, the gluts and the calves but especially the gluts and the hip flexors. So you're going to raise your hip nice and slow and try and keep the body stable. Try to keep your body as level and flat as possible and raise to the side. Try to keep the foot flexed and if that is too uncomfortable its okay if you point your toe because you are going to feel the burn a little bit more when you have your foot flexed. Of course we have our different hand options and if that bothers your wrists or your shoulders you can come down to this position.
