This resistance band abductor exercise can be performed standing, seated or whilst lying on the floor.
Aim to perform this abductor exercise in a slow motion, ideally holding in the outer phase for a few seconds in order to keep a full contraction on your abductor muscles.
Stand centrally between a strong band, with the edge of your trainers, resting against the inner sides of the band, keeping both feet facing forward.
Smoothly lean slightly to one side, whilst simultaneously taking the leg on your other side, directly out to that side, using the band to apply resistance on the edge of your trainer.
