Variations

  • Superband lateral walk

    The superband lateral walk is an intermediate level exercise to strengthen the muscles at the outside of your hips. This exercise also targets the quadriceps, hamstrings and back extensor muscles. The superband lateral walk adds more vertical resistance to the movement, placing a higher demand on the knee and hip extensor muscles.

     

  • Superband X walk

    The superband X walk adds an upper-body component to the movement. This exercise trains the cross-body connection, that transmits forces from the ground through the leg and hip, across the SI-joint via the thoracodorsal fascia, into the opposite lattisimus dorsi. This exercise is suitable for intermediate and advanced fitness levels.
