The Mini Band Thruster is a great total body core exercise that works every muscle from your toes all the way up to the top of your head. When you do this exercise, pay close attention to the following:
1.) Ankles - are in line with your toes.
2.) Knees - keep them in line with your toes and ankles.
3.) Thighs - keep them tight through out the exercise to protect your knees.
4.) Butt- keep squeezing your butt throughout the exercise.
5.) Kegel Contraction - keep the muscles of the lower pelvis engaged.
6.) Belly - suck it in and away from the waist band of your pants.
7.) Shoulders - keep your shoulders down and away from your ears
8.) Chin - Draw your chin back and slightly down toward the notch at the base of your neck.
This exercise will build strength, muscular definition and rock your cardio world. For more of a cardio challenge, limit the rest time between sets from 1 minute to 20 seconds. :)
