Instructions: How To

A resistance band exercise targeting the hip abductor muscles, performed in a side-lying position. By placing a mini loop band around the thighs, it adds resistance to the abduction movement, enhancing muscle activation and strength. This exercise is effective for improving hip strength and stability.

  1. Lie on your right side with a band wrapped around both ankles and your legs extended with your knees and feet stacked on top of each other.
 Raise your left extended leg vertically until your leg reaches a 45 degree angle with the floor.
 Control the band back to the starting position and repeat with the opposite side.
