Anchored Standing Leg Abduction With Loop Bands

Anchored Standing Leg Abduction With Loop Bands

Area Targeted: Outer Thigh


Set up:

Anchor: Secure the door anchor at the bottom of the door.

Bands: Attach the band to the door anchor.

Body Positioning: Place the band around the ankle of your active leg. Stand 3 to 4 feet away from the door with your non-active leg closest to the door, and a couple of inches behind the active leg. Keep your back straight, head straight, chest up, and hands on hips.


Movement: Pull your active leg out to the side until it creates a 45 degree angle with the floor. Slowly return to the starting position. Repeat.


Points To Remember:

1. Keep your active leg straight throughout the range of motion.
2. Visualize pulling the resistance from your heel.
3. If needed, position a chair for stability.
