Prevent injury: Inner leg thigh lift

The Prevent injury: Inner leg thigh lift helps with lateral (side) stability. If they are weak, you might experience pain in your hip joint during or after your run.

Technique

  • Lie on your left side on the floor.
  • Keep your right leg bent in front of your body on the floor and your right leg straight.
  • Lift your left (bottom) leg off the floor as high as you can.
  • Slowly lower with control.
  • Complete one set on the left before changing over to the right.

Be safe

Only lift your leg as high as you feel comfortable.
