Standing Hip Extension Exercises

These exercises are great for the Gluteus Maximus, Semitendinosus, Semimembranosus, and Biceps Femoris.  

To start this exercise you will need Exerband Tubing with handles, an anchor strap hooked to a door.  Optional but worth having is the Web Slide® Exercise Rail System.
  1. Place the Web-Anchor Strap in the side of the door at ankle level.
  2. Place foot through the tube and wrap tube around the ankle of the exercise leg, or use optional Extremity Strap.
  3. Stand facing the door and step back to take up the slack in the tubing. Use chair for support.
  4. Extend your leg backwards. Start this motion at the hip, keeping a neutral spine position. Motion should occur at the hip, not the lower back.
  5. Slowly return to the starting position.
