Lateral band walking engages many of the deep muscles that are involved in stabilization of the pelvis. Doing this before working out can help improve hip stability and knee joint stabilization. This, in turn, improves overall body mechanics and movement efficiency during a workout or competition. This preparation is particularly helpful for any athlete who engages in sports that require running, jumping, pivoting and twisting.

 A weak glute medius muscle can lead to problems in the knee joint, and is often the underlying reason for knee pain and injury, particularly ACL injuries . A strong glute medius not only stabilizes the hip, but it helps maintain proper tracking in the knee joint, by reducing lateral stress on the knee.
