BAND REVERSE PLANK INSTRUCTIONS
1. Sit on the mat with your legs extended, place a band around your waist, extend your arms back with your fingers facing the body, and secure the band under your hands.
2. Lift your butt off the mat and squeeze the glutes.
3. Lower the hips to return to the starting position and repeat.
PROPER FORM AND BREATHING PATTERN
Keep your hands under your shoulders, your arms and legs extended and maintain your head neutral. Roll your shoulders back, open your chest and breathe out as you lift your hips and squeeze the glutes. Inhale as you return to the initial position.
The band reverse plank works your glutes, core, and arms and improves your overall strength and stability. This exercise also engages your shoulders and legs, giving you a great full body workout.
SETS AND REPS
Practice doing the tabletop reverse pike and the advanced bridge first. Once you’re comfortable with your form, increase resistance and advance to the band reverse plank. Try to complete 2 or 3, 30 second to 1-minute sets.
