How to perform a Weighted Banded Psoas March with TurnFit Personal Trainers and guest Kennedy Hindley

This exercise adds weight and complexity to a foundational core stability and strengthening program. A more advanced version of the psoas march, it protects the lower back while engaging the hip flexors. People with tight hip flexors will benefit from building up to this exercise and using it to keep their hip flexors strong and flexible for better movement.

Steps
1. Lie face up. Bring our legs to tabletop position, knees bent and lower legs parallel to the floor. Place a band around your feet.
2. Fully extend your arms above you in line with your shoulders while holding a plate.
3. Breathe into your lower abdomen to stabilize your lumbar spine.
4. Move the feet outward creating tension while holding a plate. Tuck your chin in to raise your head to look at your feet.
4. Brace core while you reach one leg out against the banded resistance as though you will straighten the leg but not allow it to touch the floor.
5. Bring it back to the starting position.
4. Repeat alternating legs.

NOTE: Do not allow your rib cage to lift as you move your leg. Maintain contact of your back to the ground.
