Cable Hip Flexion

Connect one leg to floor-level cable. Stand about 3 feet away from the machine, facing away from it. Keep standing leg bent. Begin with working leg extended behind you with your foot pointing towards the floor. Bring the knee up in front of you to 90 degrees, with a 90-degree angle in the hip. As you raise your leg, pull your toes up towards the ceiling. Pause at the top and bottom of the motion.

  • As you feel more stable doing this exercise, bring the opposite arm forward as you raise your leg (similar to a running motion).
