Standing Leg Abduction

1. Stand erect with your weight on the right leg and your right hand on a chair or table balancing your body. Place your left hand on your hip.
 
2. Keep your left leg straight while moving that leg away from your body towards the left. When the leg reaches a point where you feel a contraction in the area of the buttocks, stop the motion and hold for one second.
 
3. Then return the leg to the starting position.
 
This will constitute one repetition. Perform this motion for 10 - 15 repetitions and then switch legs.
