Move Targets: Outer Thighs (Abduction) and Core


Step-By-Step

Step 1: Lie on your side and prop yourself up on your elbow with the elbow directly beneath your shoulder. Bend both of your knees at 45-degree angle, stacking your knees on top of one another. Rest the other hand on your hip.

Step 2: Squeeze the lower oblique so your torso and hips stay lifted. Keeping your feet together, and hips lifted, raise your right knee as high as you can without your heels coming apart. Pause, then return to the starting position.
