Seated Hip Abduction

| Fitness Index


Move Targets: body


Step 1: Sit on the floor, legs extended straight out in front of you. Keeping your core engaged, lean back slightly, so you’re able to place your hands on either side of your glutes. Even though you're leaning back to engage the muscles, aim to be tall.


Step 2: With flexed feet and a tight core, lift left leg a few inches off the ground. With control, push right leg out to the side without touching the floor. Return to start, that’s one rep. Repeat several times on the same side before you switch. As you go, remind yourself to sit tall and not round the back!Seated-hip-abduction
