Side Lying Hip Abduction

Sidelying hip abduction: Start laying on your side with bottom leg slightly bent for support. Roll the top hip forward, and point toes down toward the floor with the ankle bent up toward the shin. Raise the top leg up and slightly behind you, leading with the heel. Ensure that your hip stays rolled forward. You should feel this in the side of your glutes, where your gluteus medius is. If you feel this at the side of your leg or pelvis, roll your hip forward more or bring the leg slightly more behind you. Repeat 10X on each side.
