5 Hip Band Exercises You Can Do From Anywhere

Let’s take a few minutes to talk about Hip Bands. Why we love them, and why you should too.

Hip bands are one of the most affordable and practical pieces of fitness equipment you can own. They take up next to no space and are super lightweight. Making them ideal for a home or on-the-go workout.

They are used to activate your hip flexors and glutes. Making them a great tool for warming up before a heavy leg day at the gym. But, hip bands are not just a pre-workout tool. They can also be used for full on workouts!

Bands are especially helpful if you’re looking to do exercises that will mostly target the muscles in your butt. They’re also helpful if you’re looking to prime your glutes for an all-around workout.
