Activity: Side-stepping: lateral foot resistance

33-36p

Summary:

A lateral movement exercise focusing on lateral pelvic stability and lateral foot stability. The hip abductors (primarily gluteus medius) and the lateral foot stabilizers (peroneus longus, brevis and tertius).

Description:

  • start in a slight squat or the athletic "ready position", with a loop of elastic resistance band around the mid-foot.
  • keep pelvis stable and spine in a neutral position
  • take a small step out to one side, while maintaing a level pelvis.
  • also, focus on the movement coming from the center of the body (this keeps the center of gravity moving in a more controlled manner)
