It’s true that strong hips equals stronger and more injury resilient knees! Unfortunately, most forget about training the lateral and medial, lower body muscle groups. However, have no fear. Developing strong hips is easy and can be achieved with just a couple, simple bodyweight exercises (for best results use a resistance or mini band).

Watch Coach Jessica’s video tutorial on Monster Walks to get started. The equipment used in the video is known as Mini Bands and can be found online or in your favorite sporting goods store.

Monster Walk Workout Details:

  • Step into mini band, and position band around ankles
  • Spread feet to hip width, and sink into a half squat
  • Move foot to opposite foot’s arch, then push that foot out and forward (in a diagonal motion)
  • After 10 to 12 repetitions, repeat the exercise backwards

How did you do?

We would love to hear your feedback below and what you think of Monster Walks. Great job today! Keep up the good work!
