Hip Bridges: Hip bridges will help engage your hip flexors, glutes, and hamstrings, says Healthline. Begin by lying flat on your back with your feet flat on the ground with your legs bent. Next, use the weight from your heels to lift your hips up so they’re in line with your knees and shoulders. If you are doing it correctly, you should feel a driving motion in your glutes and hamstrings.
Lying Lateral Leg Raises: Healthline states that lying lateral leg raises will help strengthen your iliotibial band. This band is partially responsible for your side-to-side leg motions. To perform this exercise, lie on your right side and extend your right arm out for balance. Then lift your left leg as high up as you possibly can. Then slowly bring your left leg back down so it’s back in line with your right leg. Check out these exercise bands for better results.
