0606 Hip Band

The Hip Band is a resistant band in elastic fabric, sewn in a loop and characterized by an internal antiskid rubberizing. Placed over the knees, it can be used as a complementary tool for hip flexion and extension exercises, in particular squats and hip thrusts, in order to obtain a higher activation of the gluteus medius muscle and of the tensors fasciae latae. That is why it is called Hip Band. In addition, especially while performing squats with a heavy load, the use of an elastic band (to be extended by pushing outwards with the legs) could help the athlete correcting the common mistake of bringing the knees closer, making the legs take the incorrect “X position” during the exercise.
