Lying Leg Abduction with Resistance Band

| Fitness Index


Move Targets: Inner and Outer Thighs


Step 1:  Use a mini band or knot an exercise band to wrap around your feet, which should be flexed. Lie on your back and extend the legs straight up from the hips. Press your arms into the floor at your side and tuck the shoulder blades into each other.


Step 2: Exhale and pull the band apart as wide as you can with good control. The goal is to get the feet a little wider than your shoulders. Slowly close the gap by bringing your feet back to the starting point, no closer. You want to keep the band tight. If you find yourself arching your back off the floor, try bending the knees until the back relaxes.
