The Resistance Band is one of the most flexible tools available not only in the way you can use it for exercises, but in it’s portability and ease. This band can fit in a small handbag or backpack and taken anywhere; perfect for travel!

Here are the steps to learning Resistance Band Tick Tock:

1) Stand on band with feet shoulder width apart and hold handles next to hip bones.

2) Keep legs long as you press right leg out to the side, then set right foot down and press left leg out to the side. That is a total of one repetition.

3) As you alternate pressing legs side to side be sure to keep your abs tight so your body stays tall and doesn’t “tip” over to the side.

Targets: legs
