REVOREHAB - Vol. 6 Monster Walk

This is a gluteal activation exercise that is good to include in a warm up. It combines lateral movement and angular work required in many sports. It's also a great exercise for change of direction athletes involved in dynamic sport such as soccer, footy or basketball.

  1. The band can be placed above or below the knee to begin with
  2. Push down through the back leg and away using the same stance leg for propulsion
  3. Big to bigger motion through the legs means that there are no narrow feet at any point in this exercise
  4. Trunk stays strong and upright
  5. Movement is on a 45-degree angle (across and forwards) diagonally
  6. Then completed on a 45-degree angle (across and back)

We use a 5-10m area and complete 3-5 laps back and forth

To make the exercise more difficult the band can move lower down the leg, the movement can be completed quicker (more power) or complete it with a slightly heavier band
