The standing hip abduction is a great exercise to use if you want to strengthen the muscles on the front side of your hips as well as your glute muscles. It is also great to use before a tough workout since it really helps stretch out and warm up your legs.
To begin standing hip abductions, stand against a wall or other sturdy object. Lift one leg into the air as high as you possibly can. Hold this position for a few seconds and then slowly lower your leg to the starting position. Repeat the movement with your other leg. Try to do this exercise about 10 times.
That’s about it for standing hip abductions. It’s pretty simple, and it provides a lot of benefits as far as flexibility and strength building.
