This video looks at exercises you can do with a resistance band to work out. These exercises can be done at home or on the side of the court while you’re waiting. 

For the first exercise you’ll want to place the band around your ankles and move laterally, taking little steps. This is meant to work out your abductors and your quads. The next exercise is called skaters. Here you want to move your feet backwards in the air diagonally. You should feel this in your glutes, hips, and quads. Lastly, you can take the band and put it around the arches of your feet to do banded marches. This is going to strengthen the other muscles in your quads. You should also feel it in your butt and hip flexors as well.  

You can also put the bands across the top of your feet and do side-steps that you’ll feel in a few different areas.  

You should do 10 reps of each exercise and repeat them three times daily. This will help strengthen the areas around your knee.
