Ball Hip Abduction


  • Place the ball between you and your thigh against a wall. Standing straight, bend the leg pushing against the ball to 90 degrees behind you. Place your other hand against the wall for stability.
  • Now, slowly squeeze the ball against the wall with your bent leg pressing against it. Hold for a few seconds, then slowly release.
  • Switch sides and perform with other leg in the same fashion.


  • Remember to breath in during the pushing phase and breath out as you release.
