Make the Most of Side Stepping with Lakeshore Physical Therapy!

Weakness of the hip abductors is quite common and often present with hip impingement, iliotibial band syndrome, patellofemoral syndrome and chronic ankle sprains.  One popular hip abductor strengthening exercise is side stepping with a resistive band. It is important to note that muscle activity of the gluteus medius (gathered via electromyograph) is higher in the squat posture compared to the upright posture.  The muscle activity is also higher in the stance leg than the moving leg. 

When performing the exercise, try to squat and maintain the squat position while side stepping for the best glute workout.  View the full research article here:
