Instructions: How To

Mini Loop Band Standing Hip Extension is an isolation movement that involves extending one leg out behind you. The use of a loop band adds resistance to this movement, especially near the end of your range of motion. This exercise is particular effective for building functional strength since it’s performed from a standing position.

  1. Stand upright with your feet hip width apart and a band wrapped around both ankles.
  2. Kick your extended right leg behind you while keeping your feet hip width apart.
  3. Control the band back 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.
