Instructions: How To

This isolation exercise primarily targets your abductors. The use of a loop band gives you more control over the resistance. By performing this exercise while standing and balancing on one leg, this can be a great way to develop functional strength and stability in your hips.

  1. Wrap a resistance band at the bottom a fixed pole and stand upright with your feet shoulder width apart perpendicular to the pole with the band wrapped around your outside ankle.
  2. Grab ahold of the pole for support and laterally move your outside leg away from your body keeping your leg straight.
  3. Control the movement back to the starting position and repeat with the opposite side.
