Hip abductor recruitment: floor spread in partial squat stance
An exercise to involve more hip abductor control in weight-bearing activities.
- stand in a partial squat position while maintaining a neutral spine
- without noticeably shifting or moving your legs, ankles or feet, create a slight outwards force as if you were stretching the carpet sideways with your feet
- repeat as needed
- you can incorporate this gentle engagement of hip abductors to other double-leg weight-bearing exercises
