Lateral Walking -- Mini Band

Start by wrapping a mini band around your legs placing it just above the knees. Stand with your knees bent slightly and your feet shoulder width apart.


Moving to your right, push into the ground with the left leg while stepping laterally with the right. As you move to your right, think about leading with the right knee and not the foot. This tip will keep tension on the band and recruit the appropriate muscles.


Bring the left foot back to the starting position and continue for the prescribed number of repetitions making sure you maintain proper posture and keep your shoulders parallel to the ground.

Repeat the same process while moving to the left.
