Home Exercise Tips: Sports Cord Harness Side Shuffle

Sports Cord Harness Side Shuffle is an excellent exercise to train the body in a lateral direction. This movement is not only good for sports and conditioning, but for everyday uses, such as getting in and out of the car. To perform this exercise correctly:
1. Begin by putting the sports cord around the torso. It is highly recommended that someone hold the other end of the sports cord.
2. Allow a bit of room for the side-to-side motion. The person holding the other end of the cord will be standing to the side.
3. Start taking steps to the side until you cannot step out any further. SLOWLY return to the starting point by taking steps to the side.
4. Repeat for a number of repetitions or a timed period and then switch to the other side by facing the opposite direction.
