EXERCISE 2

 

Begin in the Butterfly position and slowly stretch one leg out to the side so it is in a clear line from your hip.

 
 

Point your toes up while keeping your knee straight. Your other leg should be folded inwards with your heel tucked in toes pointing opposite to you.

 
 

Gently grab the band and pull it slightly up and towards yourself to lift your calf and foot off the ground.

 
 

Remain in this position for 20 to 30 seconds.

 
 

Relax for 20 seconds.

 
 

Then repeat for your other leg.

 
 

Notes: If there’s not enough tension on the band; you can tie a knot in the band to make it shorter (search for “EverStretch tie knot” on YouTube).
