Activity: Side-stepping: resistance

33-36

Summary:

A lateral movement exercise focusing on lateral pelvic stability and proper movement.

Description:

  • start in a slight squat or the athletic "ready position", with a loop of elastic resistance band around the ankles.
  • 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)
  • (to promote medial knee stability against a valgus force, band can be placed just above the knees, but this can also aggravate many knee conditions/injuries)
