In this video I demonstrate how to strengthen your Sidekick with a resistance band. A powerful sidekick can be a vital tool. I personally use it often!
Make sure you stretch properly before doing this exercise so you don't pull any muscles.
The low, medium, and high sidekick use different muscles and different angles so it's important to strengthen the muscles at all levels.
