Stand with a shoulder width stance, knees relaxed and hips back slightly.  Step on a band and grab the band with the hands and cross the band so the shape of an X is formed with the band

movement

Take a wide step out laterally.  The band should have enough tension in order to feel the glute working.  If you are only able to step out a few inches, reset the band tension to the point where a wider stance can be achieved.

Alternating

Step back in to the shoulder width stance and begin to alternate by stepping out with the opposite foot.
