Raise your hips so that your body forms a straight line from the knees to the men and now make a slight face to face movement with your knees (as if you wanted to open your legs even more). Pause briefly for a maximum of three seconds and return to the initial situation. That's a reiteration.
2. Flexible banded side pass (ten repetitions with each foot)
Stand with your feet slightly wider than your shoulders, knees bent, and place the elastic resistance near your ankles. Now your right foot is a little more expensive on the right foot, always and at all times holding the tension of the flexible resistance and your feet are pointed face forward. Repeat ten times and then follow exactly the same procedure with your left foot and face left movement.
3. Flexible band squats (fifteen - twenty repetitions)
