Shoulder - Lats - Legs

Shoulders - 1
Wrap your power band around your back and hold on to both ends. Place one hand on your hip and the other comes out to one side,

Shoulders - 2
This is your starting position. Make sure your legs are shoulder width apart and your knees are soft. Don't forget to hold in your abdominal area.

Shoulders - 3
Bring your arm up to the side but do not go above the shoulder line. Do at least 2 sets of 8-15 reps. Remember to be creative with your up and downs and don't forget to do the other side.

Lats - 1
Take one side of power band and place it under one foot. Grab the other ring with the opposite hand. When you are bending over make sure to pull in those abdominals and keep your back straight.

Lats - 2
Pull back on the power band while keeping your arm close to your side and then release back down to staring position. Do not over pull or twist your torso. Repeat 2 sets of 8-15 on each side.

Legs - 1
Take one ring and step into it with both feet. Position the band right above your knees. Make sure you pull in your abdominal area.

Legs - 2
Go into a squatting position. Make sure you sit back and not down. Keep your knees back behind your toes. Look down and if you can't see your toes correct your position. You can do this going to one side for eight and then switch and come back to the left. This will work your outer thighs, quadriceps and gluteus. Do this exercise until your legs are fatigued.
