Day 39: Resistance Band Side Steps
Although the activity of this exercise is focused around your ankles, the side step exercise actually works on your abdominal muscles, buttocks, and thighs as well as your leg muscles.
Step 1: Stand up straight.
Step 2: Place your feet about shoulder-width apart. Wrap the resistance band around both legs just above the ankles and make sure there is no slack.
Step 3: You will work one direction then do the reverse direction. Starting to the right, left your right foot up and try to step with the right leg as far as you are able.
Step 4: Bring your left foot to the right so your feet are separated in their original position, with feet apart and no slack in the resistance band.
Step 5: Repeat for 6 steps to the right.
Step 6: Reverse and do 6 steps to the left. Keep your legs as straight as possible so that you are working the muscles on the sides of your legs.
