4. Squat With Mini-Band
Stand with your feet facing forward at hips width.
Tie elastic around your knees, just above them. The band should be taut when your feet are hip distance apart.
Lower your body to a squat position by pushing your hips backward, bending your knees while keeping your back neutral.
Squeeze your buttocks to resist the pull of the band and keep the your knee caps aligned with the center of your feet (2nd toes). Do not let the band pull your knees inward.
Return to the standing position and repeat.
Do 8-12 reps, working up to 3 sets, 3 days a week.
