Similar to the “Rockers” exercise, this workout tones the lower half—specifically inner and outer thighs and glutes. A resistance band will be needed for this exercise.

Setup & Starting Position

1. While holding the handles of the band, step on it with both feet so that it goes below the arches of your feet.
