5 Ways to Maximize Your Home Workouts with the NordStick Banded Pro

Transform your home into a personal gym with the NordStick Banded Pro! This compact and versatile piece of equipment offers an array of exercises to strengthen and tone your body without the need for bulky, expensive machines. Here are five effective and practical exercises you can do with the NordStick Banded Pro, each designed to target different muscle groups, improve your overall fitness, and enhance your daily comfort.

Leg Extensions

Secure your ankles in the bands, sit on a chair facing away from the door, and perform leg extensions just as you would with a leg extension machine at the gym. This exercise primarily targets your quadriceps, the muscle group at the front of your thigh. Strengthening these muscles can help you prevent knee pain and reduce the risk of injuries like ACL strains.

For those looking to build strength, aim for 3 sets of 10-15 repetitions performed three times a week. This frequency ensures muscle growth without overtraining.


  • Strengthens quadriceps, which stabilizes your knees.
  • Helps in improving your knee joint stability.
  • Can alleviate and prevent knee pain.

Leg Curls

Lie down on your stomach (prone position), fasten your ankles around the bands, and pull your heels as close to your buttocks as possible. You might want to use a yoga mat or a NordPad for elbow comfort. This exercise targets your hamstrings, which are crucial for knee stability and strength. Regular hamstring exercises can prevent lower back pain and reduce the incidence of leg and knee injuries.


  • Enhances hamstring muscle tone.
  • Prevents hamstring and lower back injuries.
  • Supports knee joint health.

For optimal results, perform 3 sets of 10-15 repetitions two to three times a week.

Reverse Squats

With the bands secured around the arch of your feet, lie on your back and position yourself to feel tension from the bands. Start bending your knees towards your core and then extend them back out. Placing a yoga mat or NordPad under your head can increase comfort. This exercise is excellent for targeting the lower abs and thighs.


  • Strengthens core and lower body.
  • Helps in improving pelvic and knee stability.
  • Reduces risk of lower back pain.

Aim for 2-3 sets of 12-16 repetitions, three times a week for strength building.

Standing Hip Abduction

Stand next to a door, with the banded ankle farthest from the door. Perform the movement by lifting the leg sideways away from your body, engaging the outer thigh and gluteal muscles. This exercise is vital for stabilizing your hips and improving your overall balance.


  • Strengthens the hip abductors, which support mobility.
  • Enhances balance and stability.
  • Prevents hip and lower back pain.

For those looking to increase muscle tone, perform 2-3 sets of 12-15 repetitions per leg three times a week.

Standing Hip Extension

Face the door with the band around your ankle, ensuring some tension. Pull the band backward, engaging the glutes and hamstrings, then return to the starting position. This exercise helps strengthen the back of your legs and your buttocks.


  • Improves the strength and tone of glutes and hamstrings.
  • Helps prevent injuries associated with weak posterior muscles.
  • Enhances lower body power for daily activities.

Recommended routine: 3 sets of 10-12 reps, three times weekly.
