Standing Leg Abduction With Loop Resistance Bands

Area Targeted: Outer Thigh

Standing Leg Abduction With Loop Resistance Bands is the perfect exercise if you are looking to target the outer thighs. However, you get added benefits from this exercise as well, like improved balance and strengthening on the inactive, stationary leg, which must support your body weight.

Set Up

Anchor: Not Required

Bands: Place the band around both legs, right above the ankle.

Body Positioning: Stand up straight with your chest up, back straight and head straight, and hands on hips.
