90-Degree MiniBand Step-Out (Shoulders Square)

This is a variation of the 90-Degree MiniBand Step-Out exercise I posted a couple weeks back.

Similar to the previous variation, the goal here is to hold strong on the front knee position while the hips open up. The major difference here is that now the shoulders are staying square to the original direction.

This helps reinforce dissociation between the shoulders and hips that helps the player keep their eyes oriented to the play while repositioning in a different direction.

Typically performed for 2-3 sets of 6-8 reps/side.
