Exercises for IT Band Syndrome

After a long-distance race, the outside my left knee would always swell and painful. Iliotibial Band Syndrome (ITBS) is one of the most common overuse injuries among runners. Instead of shelling out hard-earned money for myotherapy every month, I recommend that you strengthen your glutes and hips. Personally, I already started doing this routine last week.  Looking forward for a quicker recovery in the coming races

Remember these pointers:
  1. If you currently have ITBS, perform this routine every other day.
  2. Modify the number of reps or take extra time in between exercises (if necessary).
  3. This workout can also be done weekly (for injury prevention purposes) if you don’t have ITBS.
  4. Start with low resistance bands and move to a higher resistance when it becomes too easy.
