Side Steps with Band
- WHY: This exercise is great for strengthening the leg muscles, particularly on the outer side.
- HOW: In a standing position place a resistance band just above the knees. From here, find a squat position and try to spread the band while keeping the foot flat on the floor. Now side step to one side while avoiding knee collapse and keep the band from slackening. After moving in one direction stop and alternate to the opposite direction.
- FEEL: You should feel this exercise in your leg muscles, particularly in your butt and thigh. Make sure the band is flat on your leg and not scrunched up. If the band is irritating you place it over your shorts.
