- Begin in a seated position on a chair. Loop the resistance band around the front-right leg of the chair and your right ankle. With your feet resting on the floor directly beneath your knees, place both hands on the side of the chair holding the edges. This is your starting position. Inhale. While keeping your torso and upper leg as still as possible, exhale as you extend your right knee until your leg is straight or as close to as possible. You should feel tension in your quadriceps (top of your leg). Inhale as you bend your knee to return to the starting position. Repeat for the specified number of repetitions or time on each side.
