How to Do Banded Side Kicks
- Place an elastic band around your ankles. Hold on to something with your hands for balance.
- Stand on one leg, while bringing your other leg as far out to the side as possible.
- Bring the leg back in while resisting the band.
Banded side kicks train the muscles that abduct (moves apart) your thighs, like your gluteus medius and parts of gluteus maximus.
