Hip Ws – Band

  • HOW: Begin in a squat position, with a majority of your weight in the balls of your feet. Take a step out to your side (in a W formation) and allow your opposite leg to slowly meet with the leg that stepped out. Make sure to keep tension on the band for the entirety of this exercise, avoid allowing the knees to get close together.  I only go forward and backward with a very small distance for filming purposes, feel free to cover a much larger distance.
  • FEEL: You will feel the entire leg with this exercise, majority of the burn will likely be in the glute and quad muscles.
  • COMPENSATION: Avoid allowing the knees to cave in during this exercise, make sure to keep the knees spread into the band. Also avoid allowing the knee from going forward past your toes.
