Move Targets: Outer Thighs (Abduction)


Step-By-Step

Step 1: Stand with your feet just under your hips and lift the toes to slide the band underneath the arches. Cross the band once and grab a handle with either hand. If you have a lot of slack left, reach through the handles and grab onto the band itself. As you're standing, create a slight bend in the knees to protect your joints.

Step 2: Step one foot out to the side using the glutes and outer thigh muscles to work against the resistance band. Bring the other leg back under the hips, then continue to step in the same direction for three to four reps, then reverse with the other leg.
