PERSONAL TRAINER INSTRUCTION  :

Banded Hip Hinge Start

Anchor the band about ankle height. Using a closed-grip, straddle the band and hinge your torso forward. This position should be virtually the same as a Romanian Deadlift (RDL).

Driving through your heels and consciously activating the gluteus maximus (butt), stand up and squeeze. Lower yourself back to the hinge by using a controlled and slow movement.

Be sure to focus on using the glutes and hamstrings by driving from the heel. If there isn’t conscious activation of the gluteal muscles, the lower back will do most of the work – which is NOT the purpose of this exercise. Do not round your back during any part of this exercise. Focus on keeping the shoulders depressed and retracted.
