Overview

The straight leg outer hip abductor is an exercise targeting the hip abductors. It is performed by lying on your side with your legs extended and your feet together. You then raise your top leg up towards the ceiling, keeping your knee straight and your foot flexed. You should feel a stretch in your outer hip abductors.

This exercise is a good way to strengthen and tone your hip abductors, which are important muscles for stabilizing your pelvis and hip joint.
