Workout: To do at home, in the gym or on the go!
Hip abduction

This movement targets the hip muscles (Gluteus Medius and front fibers of the Gluteus Maximus, or buttocks muscles).
The exercise may be
performed with or without an exercise band.
--Begin by leaning on hands and knees, feet resting on your bent toes.
--Place the exercise band around your lower thighs, just above your knees.
--Press your hands onto the floor and pull your belly
button toward your spine to contract the deep adominal muscles, or your core.
--Inhale, then exhale and lift one bent leg out to the side. The bent knee should finish lower than the hip.
--Hold the position for 3 seconds.
--Avoid arching your lower
back, hiking the hip upward or moving your head or neck forward.
--Slowly return your leg to the start position, and then perform 10-12 controlled repetitions.
--Repeat the sequence with the other leg.
