Superband lateral walk

Objective

The superband lateral walk strengthens the muscles at outside of your hips. These muscles stabilize the hip and knee.

Compared to the mini-band lateral walk, the superband lateral walk adds more vertical resistance to the movement, placing a higher demand on the knee and hip extensor muscles.

Starting Position

Place both feet shoulder-width apart inside a superband.

Assume a quarter squat position.

Pull the superband over your head to place it in the neck.

Execution

Take a step to the right with the right leg and follow with the left leg.

Take the prescribed number of steps to the right and then repeat on the opposite side.

Coaching Keys

Maintain the quarter squat position throughout the entire exercise.

Avoid that the knees move inward. Keep the knee well aligned between hip and ankle.

Keep the toes pointed forward.

Keep your feet at least shoulder-width apart, so there is always tension on the superband.
