Standing 3 Way Hip – Flexion, Abduction, Extension, Band at Knees, Wall Supported

  • HOW: Begin by standing next to a wall with a band looped around your knees just above the knee cap. Place the hand closest to the wall on the wall for support. Keep the knee straight and kick the leg furthest from the wall forwards, to the side, and straight behind you. Come back to the starting position after each direction and repeat for the prescribed amount of reps. 
  • FEEL: You should feel your hip muscles working. 
  • COMPENSATION: Keep your body upright, don’t lean away from each direction you kick. Only use your hip muscles to move your leg.
