Activity: Hip abductors: pelvic hike

Ar3

Summary:

A functional one-leg exercise for the hip abductors (primarily gluteus medius).

Description:

  • standing on one leg with your spine neutral and pelvis level (ie: NOT dropped to one side)
  • engage your glutes and spinal stabilizers, release sit bones/deep hip muscles
  • try to lift the pelvis up on the unsupported (lifted-leg) side, then return to level (NOT dropped).
  • repeat as instructed
  • NOTE: proper form is very important with this exercise, as it can actually worsen symptoms of some of the conditions it is prescribed for if done improperly.
