STANDING HIP ABDUCTION. Stand with feet
hip-width apart and hold on to a chair or
counter for balance with left hand, right hand
on your hip. Lift your right foot off the ground
and flex it. Keeping your hips square and
abdominals contracted, slowly lift your right
leg out to the side until the foot is 6 inches
above the ground, then lower (without letting
your foot touch the ground) and repeat for
reps. Switch sides and repeat.
