Instructions: How To

This lateral movement exercise strengthens the hips, glutes, and thighs, improving stability and promoting muscle balance. The loop band adds resistance to each step, increasing the effectiveness of the movement for strengthening the abductor muscles and enhancing overall lower body power and agility.

  1. Stand with feet shoulder-width apart with toes pointed slightly outward.
  2. Place the band under the midfoot area and twist the band one time to create an X.
  3. Grip the band with both hands shoulder-width apart.
  4. Bend the knees slightly with hips pushed slightly back and keep your chest facing forward throughout the exercise.
  5. Brace your core and slowly step to the side with one foot and your stance should be well outside shoulder-width.
  6. Step the other foot in the same direction while maintaining decent tension in the band.
  7. Continue to step in the same direction until the set is complete.
  8. Repeat movement in the other direction when the set is complete.
