Overview

Standing hip circles is an exercise targeting the hip abductors. It is a dynamic exercise that helps to improve flexibility and range of motion in the hips. It can also help to strengthen the hip abductors, which are the muscles that help to externally rotate the hip and abduct the thigh away from the midline of the body. To perform standing hip circles, stand with your feet shoulder-width apart and your knees slightly bent. Hold your arms out to the sides at shoulder height. Slowly circle your hips in one direction for 30 seconds, then reverse direction and circle your hips in the other direction for 30 seconds. Repeat this exercise for 23 sets.
