Instructions: How To

This is an isolation movement that targets your glutes. The exercise involves kneeling on all fours, and raising one leg out and up against the resistance of a mini loop band. The use of a mini loop band helps to add resistance to this exercise, especially at the end of your range of motion.

  1. Place a band around your thighs just above your knees and position yourself on the floor on all fours with your knees directly underneath your hips. 
 Maintain a neutral spine as you laterally raise your left knee.
 Return to the starting position and repeat with the opposite side.

Common Mistakes

  • Varying Tension with Bands

    Resistance increases as you stretch a band. Make sure you’re using a band that allows you to move through your full range of motion. The resistance may feel too light during parts of the movement.
