Move Targets: Thighs (Abductors) 


Step-By-Step

Step 1: Begin by lying on your side on the ground. Have the band wrapped around your thighs. Support your head on your bottom arm. Flex the hips to 45 degrees and the knees to approximately 90 degrees, with your right leg directly on top of your left. This will be your starting position.

Step 2: Initiate the exercise by abducting your top leg, pushing your knee away from the midline of your body. Maintain contact between your feet throughout the movement. Pause at the top of the motion, and then return to the starting position.
