Lateral Walk With Band


  • Place an elastic band around your ankles.
  • Walk sideways, so that you have to bring your leg out against the bands resistance.
  • Choose for yourself if you want to change direction after every step, or if you for example want to walk ten steps in one direction followed by ten steps in the other direction.


Lateral walk with band trains the muscles that abducts (moves apart) your thighs, like your gluteus medius and parts of gluteus maximus.
