W’s with a 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 forward and back in a W formation. Avoid allowing the knees to collapse or the band from slackening while performing this exercise. Keep tension on the band throughout this exercise. 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.
