Standing Leg Abduction

Area Targeted: Outer Thigh

Set up:
Anchor:
Secure the band(s) to the door with the door anchor at the bottom of the door.
Clip Bands & Handle Bands: Attach both ends of the bands to one ankle strap.
Body Positioning: Wrap the ankle strap around the ankle of your active leg. Stand 3 to 4 feet away from the door with your non-active leg closest to the door, and a couple of inches infront of the non-active leg. Position a chair so that you can use it for stability. Keep your back straight, head straight, chest up and stomach tight.

Movement: Pull your active leg out to the side until it creates a 45 degree angle with the floor.

Points To Remember:
1. Keep your active leg straight throughout the range of motion.
2. Visualize pulling the resistance from your heel.
