We then continue with the band around our thighs and challenge our strength and balance with a standing clam, squats and side lunge. We then continue the class down onto our sides with the band around our thighs still and use it to add resistance to both side kick and lift and lower movements.

Moving onto our backs we then challenge our core further with a one leg stretch and hip twist movements and bridging. Then using the band looped around one foot and hand we combine some arm and leg movement control. Then using the band between our hands we add some abdominal and oblique strengthening with a criss-cross exercise.

We then cool down with a rotation stretch, glute and hamstring stretches. Finishing in sitting with a combined side bend and tree hug stretch.
