The reason the Pink Thing is the best resistance band for this move is because of its intrinsic versatility. It's got serious range and can be used in a variety of ways for countless different exercises. The 7-loop design means that you can grab or step into the band at any point of it's length to easily and instantly adjust its resistance.
See for yourself:
Using the Pink Thing, you're reaping the rewards of the continuous resistance of resistance bands (so your muscles work against resistance push and pulling), while also getting TOTAL BODY resistance.
Pretty sweet, right?
The Pink Thing RDL + squat combo works your:
Core (which includes your abs, glutes, hips, obliques and back).
What's more, it'll get your heart rate up to help you score some cardio conditioning.
How to perform RDL + squat combo:
- Start by standing straight and tall with your feel slightly wider than hip-width apart.
- Step into the end loops of your Pink Thing so the loops are under the balls of your feet.
- Loop the arch of the band over your head so it rests on the back of your shoulders.
- Squat down, keeping the weight of the move in your heels. (This will help ensure the correct muscles are engaged.) Also, make sure your knees don't cave in—keep them parallel throughout the movement.
- Push back up through the heels of your feet and then hinge forward at your hips, keeping your legs straight (though not locked—maintain a soft bend in your knees). Maintain a flat spine. Push your butt out behind you and then, squeezing your glutes, stand back up.
- Drop down into a squat and repeat.
Add this resistance band exercise for your lower body to your next workout! Aim to do the move for 10-12 reps (or for 50 seconds if you're timing it) for 2-3 sets. Add the hands-free training of a weighted vest for extra resistance and even more lean gains.
And again, remember: if you don't have a Pink Thing resistance band, you can snag one now for an amazing price! It's total body training in just ONE piece of equipment.
