5. Resistance Knee Raise
Incredible Blend of Elastic Resistance with Speed and Agility
This exercise is a real breakthrough because for the first time you can add elastic resistance to your legs during the running motion and it is all done from a very natural standing position. The muscles used during this exercise also play a primary role in posture and back health, so this exercise can have tremendous benefits for all users. Using the dip stand, you can focus elastic resistance directly on your lower abdominal muscles, hip flexors and hamstrings.
