Resistance Band Sumo Deadlift

Secure your band by wrapping the ends around each foot. Set up in a sumo position with your legs out wide and your toes pointed slightly outward. With a neutral spine, hinge at your hips and grab the middle of the band with an overhand grip (as you would with a barbell). Keeping your back flat, push through your heels and extend your hips to stand up, pulling the band with you. Focus on the contraction at the top. Return to the starting position by pushing your hips back and allowing your torso to lower.
