Instructions: How To

Standing Leg Side Hold is an isolation exercise that primarily targets the glutes and hip abductors. By raising one leg to the side and holding it there, you engage these muscles to maintain stability and balance. This exercise helps improve balance, stability, and muscle endurance. It's a great addition for anyone looking to fine-tune lower body strength and muscle control.

  1. Stand with your weight on one foot and raise your opposite leg out to the side such that your toes are pointing in front of you.
  2. Tense the muscles in your thighs, hips and glutes.
  3. Hold this position for the duration of the exercise.
  4. Maintain good posture by keeping your core engaged for stability, your shoulders back and your chest up. Keep your legs straight with a slight bend in your knees.
  5. You should feel this exercise primarily in your glutes and hips.
