Hip Extension with Circles
- Stand with feet shoulder-width apart, shoulder blades squeezed together, hands on hips.
- Keeping right leg straight, knee soft, lift left leg behind body, pointing toes, until you feel a contraction in your glutes (don’t arch your back).
- Draw a four-point clockwise circle with your left toes, then repeat the circle counterclockwise.
- Do all reps on left leg, then switch sides and repeat.
This squat variation takes a wider-than-normal stance to target the muscles of the inner thigh, especially your hip adductors. It can be done as a bodyweight exercise, but I recommend holding a kettlebell or a single dumbbell. A barbell is another option if you’re a heavy lifter.
