How to Do Trunk Hip Flexion and Extension With Band

The trunk hip flexion and extension with the band should begin with a good posture to avoid injury. Brace the spine by drawing your lower abdomen inward. Your core muscles should be activated to support your posture as you perform the exercise.

If any pain is experienced, immediately stop the trunk hip flexion and extension with a band.

Trunk Hip Flexion and Extension Benefits
