Squats With Resistance Bands

Exercise / Quadriceps


WHY YOU SHOULD DO THIS EXERCISE?

Side Squats with Resistance Bands can be a great way to tone and build muscles, and they can also be a great way to help you lose weight and get in shape. The bands provide resistance to the force exerted in the progression towards the floor, making it easier to perform squats with higher weights, increasing muscle building and strength. One of the most important exercises for gaining muscle is the side squat. Side squats are a great exercise for strengthening the lower back, stabilizing the core, and building leg, glute, and hip strength.
