Netball: Resisted Crab Walk

I have thoroughly enjoyed using your site to help me with my coaching...
Donna, Coach

DESCRIPTION

  • Step into a small resistance band and place it around your legs, just under your knees 
  • Spread your legs shoulder width apart so there is tension on the band 
  • Slightly bend your legs and make sure your head, hips and knees are all facing forwards
  • Step laterally with one leg leading
  • Bring your other leg in but make sure your legs stay shoulder width apart 
  • Repeat- you can move along a line to ensure you remain facing forward.
  • Switch with the opposite leg leading moving in the other direction

COACHING POINTS

  • Keep the movement slow and controlled and ensure the side steps are not too wide
  • The aim of this exercise is to improve hip stability, strengthen the hip abductors (gluteus medius) and increase stability of the knee joint.
