Hip Abduction & Lateral Leg Raise

GOAL: Improve the running stabilization muscles.

How its done; Do this exercise while lying on the ground. (Note you may use resistance bands for more pressure, and or stand vertically and use a gym pulley system attached to your foot).

When lying down abduct the hip by lifting the top leg up and away from the body. By using circular movements in both directions you will strengthen all rotator muscles deep in the hip and stabilize the pelvis during support in running. (Note, high weight is not recommended. )
