Add the Lateral Kneeling Pallof Press to your workout repertoire:  

Benefits: This exercise will help you to improve core strength and hip mobility. Your core is challenged to hold against the lateral pull of the band. You also get groin/hip mobility work on the side of the extended leg.

Keys: Keep extended knee straight. Avoid allowing the low back to go into an arched position during butt to heel motion.

How to use: Use as a warm-up/superset on lower body day or as a core exercise in any workout. Shoot for 2-4 sets of 10-20 repetitions.
