The mini band is a great tool for activating and working the glutes. If you don’t have a mini band attached as a loop, you can take a physio theraband and tie it together. Tie tightly with a couple knots or it may fling off! Step into the theraband and place it above the knees. Perform squats, keeping the knees out in line with the second toe for 2-3 sets of 10-15. For side steps, come into a squat position and take small, controlled steps to the side for 10-12 rps, both ways for 2 sets. Ensure the hips stay low in the squat position and refrain from any bouncing movement. This exercise series should be incorporated into your warmups before training. .
