This research shows that while performing lateral banded walking, it is necessary to place the bands around the ankles and not above the knees as some do. This is because the gluteus medius and gluteus minimus (upper parts of the glutes) are better activated when the band is placed around the ankles. This idea can be applied to various movements such as:
1️⃣Cable kickbacks- strap around the ankle moving the leg backwards with a straight knee.
2️⃣Cable abduction- strap around the ankle moving the leg outwards away from the body.
3️⃣Cable adduction- strap around the ankle moving the leg across the body.
The take-home message is that you should place the weight/tension around the ankle when performing such movements to make the best glute gains!
