Banded Standing Hip Abduction

  1. Place a loop band below the knees or right above the knees, and set the feet outside hip-width apart. Make sure the knees are the same width as the feet.

  2. Go down to half-squat depth and lean the torso forward 45 degrees.

  3. Drive the knees out (hip abductions) with a 1-second pause before bringing them back to the starting position. 

  4. Continue performing hip abductions until you reach your targeted number of repetitions.
