Kick it up a notch with this quad builder.

How to do it

  1. Anchor a loop band in a low position on a support (like an incline bench), looping the other end around your ankle with the band positioned behind you.
  2. While seated, step away from the anchor to create tension on the band, and position your feet hip-width apart.
  3. Shift your weight to your left foot and lift your right leg from the floor.
  4. Extend your knee until it straightens out in front of you.
  5. Slowly return to the starting position.
  6. Repeat for 8–12 reps before switching legs.
