IT Band: Side Lunge
This lunge variation is another exercise that targets the glute meds.
Holding a pair of dumbbells, stand with your feet and knees together.
Take a large step with your right foot to the right side, lunging toward the floor.
Make sure your right knee does not extend past your toes, and keep your left leg relatively straight.
Push off through your right foot, emphasizing the weight in the heel, to return to the start to complete one.
Do three sets of 12 to 15 on each side.
