Hi, I'm Amy Newman, fitness expert and creator of The Perfect 10 Workout, and I'm going to show you how you can do some exercises for your lower extremities with the band. Let's come down on our elbows and stretch out our top leg. We want to make sure our neck is long and not sunk into our shoulders so we want to make sure our posture is always really good when we start. Put one foot and hook it into the band. Turn your toe towards the floor and gently start to pulse it up, exhaling, keeping your hips nice and square and adding more and more resistance to make it harder with the band, working the outer thighs, breathe into it. Exhale as you lift, inhale, exhale, inhale, exhale, inhale. You can move the foot forward and tap and bring the foot back and tap. Move the foot forward, tap, bring the foot back and tap, move the foot forward and double tap, tap, then back, back, and tap, tap, exhaling the whole time you're tapping, inhaling between, exhale, inhale, exhale. Then bend the knee to work the inner thigh, stretch out the bottom leg and little pulses up with your heel hooked into the other part of the band, squeezing that inner thigh, breathing, up nice and tall and then you switch sides, working both sides of the body, working your lower extremities. I'm Amy Newman, thanks for joining me as I show you some exercises that you can work with the band to work out those lower extremities.
