IT Band: Single-Leg Balance Touch
This exercise really works the deep glutes while challenging your core and sense of balance. Weak glutes can lead to imbalances that cause IT band flare-ups.
- Begin standing with arms overhead with all your weight on your left foot.
- Keeping your spine long, reach forward, bending your left knee and pointing your right leg back, touching both hands to the ground. Keep your abs engaged to keep your torso stable.
- Lower your right leg down while lifting your torso, bringing your arms overhead to complete one rep.
- Do 15 reps on each side.
