Hip Abduction (Outer Thigh Lifts)
8 reps, 8 circles in each direction
Lie on your left side with elbow under the shoulder, abs engaged, legs stacked and in line with your body, and toes pointing forward. Use your top hand for support on the floor in front of you.
Exhale and lift your top leg up as high as you can with control.
Inhale to lower back down to complete one rep. Repeat 8 times.
Next, move the leg in a big circle (not pictured) by kicking forward, up, backward and down 8 times. Then go in the opposite direction (backward, up, forward and down) to complete 8 circles. Switch to opposite side.
