March’s Fitness Tip with Kerry Engle, Shaker Pointe Fitness Director
Standing Hip Abduction
Standing up tall holding onto a sturdy object like a chair for balance
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
