Weekly Wednesday Workout: Side Lying Hip Abduction

 

One of my favorite blogger buddies Leslie from Pampers, Playdates and Parties requested that we exercise an area that we rarely spotlight on the Weekly Wednesday Workout…the HIPS!

I like these a lot, I usually use the hip abduction machine at the gym so it nice to know that I don’t necessarily need that machine to work the same area. I have notoriously tight hips and it is evident every single time I do yoga. This is a great exercise to open up the hip area while getting in some work for the glutes too!

p.s. Don’t forget: Tickets are on sale NOW for A Healthy U Conference in NYC this May! Thanks so much to everyone that has purchased their tickets so far! It is going to be amazing!!

Have you ever tried Side Lying Hip Abduction?

It’s funny how quickly these can start to BURN. Those little hip adductor muscles get tired fast!! This is a great move and an often forgot about part to train!

I don’t know if I have done it with the little move to the back at the top -gonna try it because my hips need lots of work!! Plus, who doesn’t love an exercise that you can lay on the floor while performing?!

EXACTLY! I was intrigued by the leg going back, I had never seen that before!

Oh yay for Leslie! I am all about strengthening hips. They’re one of my favorite features, mainly because I didn’t really have them before kids. I had one of those straight, boyish bodies.

I was just doing these today! They look so simple, but hurt SO much. Thanks for looking into some hip exercises…there are so many little muscles that are easy to miss out on, but are really important to train. And if you have a question for me, feel free to ask away!

Great exercise choice! I love to work on my hips because they can get painful if I get too stiff. Old people problems. 🙂
