Standing Knee Raise With Resistance Bands

Exercise / Hip Flexors


Knee raises are one of the best and most effective ways to train them. Standing knee raise is an exercise that is used to increase the strength in your lower leg, core and inner thigh muscles. It is a great exercise to increase your working muscle strength and will get your heart pumping, while they’re also a great way to burn calories. This exercise is usually done with resistance bands, but you can do it without resistance bands too.


How to perform the exercise


  • Anchor: Attach the anchor to the door at the bottom.
  • Bands: Attach a ankle strap to the resistance band.

Body Position:

  • Standing 3 to 4 feet away from the door with your back to the door, secure the ankle strap around your active ankle.
  • Position your body so that the resistance band begins to stretch with your active leg back and far enough away from the door.
  • Maintain a straight back, a firm chest, a clear brain, and a tight stomach.


  • Raise your active leg to hip height.

Exercise Tips

  • As you raise your knee try to keep your foot forward so that your lower leg remains perpendicular with the floor.
