Fitness Tips with Kerry

March’s Fitness Tip with Kerry Engle, Shaker Pointe Fitness Director 

Standing Hip Abduction


Step 1:

Standing up tall holding onto a sturdy object like a chair for balance

Step 2:

Raise one leg up and lift it out, laterally away from your body.  Pause, and then return to the starting position.

Special Instructions:  Do not let momentum swing your leg-keep it slow and controlled.  Try to keep your upper body straight-don’t lean forward or back.  Also try to keep both legs in line with your body, not forward or behind.

Try and work your way up to 2 sets of 12 repetitions
