Lateral Tube Walk Tones Lower Body

Posted May 18 2010 10:59am
The Lateral Tube Walk is a strength exercise that tones your lower body . It also looks like an easy exercise to perform. Don't be fooled by appearances. When done correctly, the lateral tube walk will challenge your strength (especially in the frontal plane ), endurance and balance.



The lateral tube walk will strengthen and tone your butt, hips , core, adductors (inner thighs) and outer thighs.

Do the exercise this way
1. Attach the resistance band just above each ankle. Place your feet shoulder-width apart with your knees slightly bent and your back straight.

2. Maintaining good posture, step your right foot out to the side about 2 shoulder-widths apart. Then, step your left foot inward until your feet are again shoulder-width apart. Your knees should remain aligned over your feet during the exercise. It is important to not let your knees "cave in" or spread outside your feet. Also, keep your glutes contracted during the exercise.

3. Do 10-15 steps in the same direction and repeat in opposite direction. That is one set. Do 2-3 sets.

If you've never done the lateral tube walk, try it during your next workout. It is an exercise you should do on a regular basis.
