Side Step – Band, On Toes

HOW: Loop a resistance band around the arches of your feet in a standing position. Move your feet out about hip width, slightly bend your knees and perform a mini squat. From here, step out to one side in a lateral motion pushing the band out. Follow with the trail leg keeping both feet pointed forwards. Perform the prescribed amount of reps or distance.    FEEL: You should feel your hip, glute, and ankle muscles working.  COMPENSATION: Don’t let the knees cave in while performing the side step. Keep the trail foot pointed forward, don’t let it turn inward as it follows the lead leg.
