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.
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.
While keeping your legs straight, push one leg out to the side until it is at a 45 degree angle with the floor. Slowly lower your leg to starting position. Repeat.
POINTS TO REMEMBER
1. Keep your legs straight throughout the movement, and push out from your heel.
