Today we're going to be showing you some exercises that you can do to strengthen the thigh. To begin lay down on the mat, and place the band across the foot so that it is nice and flat. From here take it out on a 45 degree angle and you're going to bend the leg in at the knee and press it out. Bend it in and press it out. You want to make sure that your hip, knee and ankle are aligned and that your foot is facing parallel. Another way that you could do this is by turning your foot out, again bending the leg and straightening it out. You just need to make sure again that the hip, knee, and ankle are aligned and the last exercise that you can do is to put both feet in the band, bring your heels together and your toes apart, bring your knees all the way in to your chest and press it out. This is called frog, bringing it in and pressing it out. Those are some exercises that you can do for the thigh.
