Hip Adduction

Lie on your side with your legs in line with your trunk, supporting your head with your bottom arm. Bend top knee bent to 90º and lie on the floor in front of body, resting down on the ground. Keep your hips perpendicular to the ground throughout the exercise. Tighten your abs and lock the knee. Lift the leg slowly, as high off the ground as is comfortable, then back down.

  • Control motion
  • Stop before each repetition
  • If it is difficult to keep the hips perpendicular, put a pillow under the top knee.
