This exercise targets the gluteus medius (deeper buttocks muscle) muscle.
- Tie the exercise band into a loop and place that loop around something sturdy such and a heavy table or base of a railing. Place one foot inside the loop. Stand far enough away so that there is some tension in the band.
- Bring the leg out to the side, without losing your posture. This is not meant to be a high kick. Slowly return to the start position. Repeat 10 - 12 times, then turn around and switch legs.
