Instructions: How To

A functional exercise using a mini loop band to primarily target the hip abductors and glutes. By placing the bands around the legs just above the knees, it challenges lateral stability and strengthens the muscles responsible for hip abduction. This exercise is excellent for improving hip mobility, and enhancing overall lower body strength.

  1. Stand upright with your feet hip width apart and a band wrapped around your upper knees.
  2. Lower yourself into a quarter squat and maintain this position throughout the movement.
  3. Laterally step one leg out to the side and then bring the opposite leg in the same direction so that your feet are back to hip width apart.
  4. Continue alternating your steps and then repeat with the opposite side.
