Side Leg Swings

This exercise warms up and stretches the hip flexors, hip extensors, hip adductors, and hip abductors.

Facing a wall or other support, brace the body with both arms outstretched at shoulder level. Stand upright, keeping the back straight. Keep the body stable and balanced. A slight forward lean is okay during Side Leg Swings, but avoid bending forward at the waist or rounding the back.

Swing one leg to the side of the body, extending to a comfortable height.

Swing the leg back, crossing in front of the body.

Increase the range of motion gradually until reaching the maximum comfortable height.

Swing the legs fluidly without bouncy or jerky actions.

While both legs should be fairly straight, the knees shouldn’t be locked.
