looking for a VF post about thigh or hip band

i'm looking for a post i read recently - i thought it was from a recent thread, but after looking at 5 pages of threads, i couldn't find it, so maybe it was an old thread where i read it from a tag search.

anyway, a VFer explained how she wore the hip band* and walked 100 steps (50 one way, 50 back) each day in her home and it strengthened her hips and stopped a lot of lower back and hip pain.

*worn around the upper thigh or hip area

I haven’t seen that post, but sounds like monster walks with a resistance loop. My PT has me doing them for glute strengthening. You can wear the loop around your thighs, ankles, or the arches of your feet. The lower your wear them, the harder they are. Lots of short videos on YouTube if you search “monster walks”. They are hard & they work you! I’ve been doing 200 hundred a day, 100 around the ankle, 100 around my feet. Good form, as always, is very important for your knees.

It reactivated my lazy glute that is something I have to constantly battle due to scoliosis (yes, just one glute lazy because of it).
