Walking Abduction with Band

Walking hip abduction is an exercise which uses a resistance band to strengthen the glute muscles and prevent the knees falling in when running and squatting etc.

Teaching Points:

  • To work on the hip stabiliser muscles, a small resistance band is wrapped around both ankles.
  • The athlete then moves one leg out to the side, whilst maintaining balance and stability as weight is transferred.
  • This is repeated, walking to both sides as shown.
