This exercise is the Sword Draw. You need to anchor one end of the band towards the floor on a sturdy leg of a couch or a bench. Take the other end of the band and your dumbbell in your right hand. I am going to step to the side of the anchor point, feet or about shoulder width apart, your left hand can be on your hip. Your arm is across your body toward your left hip. We are going to sit back into a squat keeping those knees behind the toes and as we stand up we are going to draw that dumbbell across our body and bringing it back down. Just like you are drawing your sword and sitting it back. Make sure your knees stay back behind your toes, keeping your abs nice and tight, sitting back. We are working our arms, our back, our abs, our butt, our legs, practically a total body workout with this move, and pulling it up and bring it back down. Aim to do 10-12 reps of this move on each side and follow it with one minute of cardio.
