The lateral band walking exercise is the perfect way to improve hip stability, strengthen the hip abductors and increase the stability of the knee joint. You can do it as a part of your warm-up or as a separate routine.
To do it:
Place the band around your ankles.
Stand in a shallower squat position, with your feet about hip-width apart, hands at your chest or on your hips.
Take a step to the right with your right foot, so that your feet are shoulder-width apart. Then, follow with your left so that your feet are hip-width apart again.
Take three steps to the right, and then three back to the left. That’s 1 rep.
