Sidelying Leg Lift on the BOSU

Description:

This exercise is great for strengthening the glutes (hip stabilizers).

Instructions:

1

Lie sideways on the BOSU with your forearm resting on the floor or mat. Your bottom leg can be bent to give you a more stable base of support. The top leg should remain straight. Ensure that your pelvis stays perpendicular with the floor. Keep your shoulders down, out of your ears.

2

Exhale, engage your core and lift the top leg. Squeeze the glutes (buttocks) as you lift the leg. Inhale and slowly lower the leg toward the floor. Ensure that you keep your core engaged throughout the exercise and that your pelvis does not shift. Do 8-12 repetitions, then switch legs. Rest, then repeat the exercise if desired.
