How to Perform
|1||Begin by standing with your feet hip width apart.|
|2||Loop the band underneath your feet at the ball of the foot level.|
|3||Cross the band and grip it with straight wrists.|
|4||Draw your shoulders blades down and slightly together.|
|5||Secure your elbows to the side of your body. Bend them at the elbow to bring the lower arm parelle to the floor.|
|6||Keep the upper body stabilized as you slowly take your right foot out and into a side step that is greater than hip width apart.|
|7||Slowly lift your left foot and bring it back to hip width.|
|8||Repeat 10x’s one way, then work your way back for 10.|
- If the knees bend too much you can loose the targeted lateral hip activation. Ensure you keep the knees soft, yet straight, moving laterally from the hips.
- It’s also easy to loose shoulder and arm stability. Ensure the elbows stay firmly placed at the side body.
