Endurance Exercise with Resistance Bands for the Hips

If you’re wanting to learn some endurance exercise with resistance bands for hips then you’re in the right place as we’ve got three for you in this post/video.

Endurance is where the muscles continue to work over a long time and typically are smaller muscles surrounding the joint. If these small muscles aren’t working as well as they could do, other muscles will take over the work and you’ll start to get a muscle imbalance which could lead to aches and pains. Improving the endurance around the hips can help with this.

We’re using a red theraband (medium strength) and it’s 1.5m long.

Here are your Three Endurance Exercise with Resistance Bands for the Hips to try:

Exercise #1: 4-point kneeling – Leg Straight

Tie a double knot on the band then loop it around your right foot and hold the other end with your left hand. Start in 4-point kneeling (your hips over your knees, shoulders over your hands), and the band will go in between the knees.

Straighten the right leg and raise it up, aiming for the leg to be parallel with the floor. Slowly return and bring that knee back underneath you. Breathe out as you straighten and raise the leg and breathe in as you return it to your start position.

Repeat 3 x 20 times. Repeat on the other side.

Exercise #2: 4-point kneeling – Leg out to the side

Start as above with the band and in 4-point kneeling. Straighten and raise your right leg so it’s parallel with the floor – your knee and toes will be pointing down to the floor throughout. Breathe out as you slide that leg out to the side and breathe in as it returns. Make sure you’re keeping that leg on the same level and not lowering it down.

Repeat 3 x 20 times. Repeat on the other side.

Variation #1: Rotate Knee and Toes (out to the side)

Start as above with your leg raised behind you. Before you start sliding the leg out to the side, rotate so your knee and toes point to the right.

Variation #2: Rotate Knee and Toes (pointing to the left)

Start as above with your leg raised behind you. Before you start sliding the leg out to the side, rotate so your knee and toes point to the left.

Exercise #3: 4-point kneeling – Leg Circles

As above for your start position, with your leg straight out behind you. Place an imaginary pencil on your heel and you start small circles in a clockwise direction. Breathe in for a count of 2, 3, 4, or 5 circles depending on how fast you are rotating around.

Aim 20 seconds clockwise and 20 seconds anti-clockwise. Repeat on the opposite side.
