The Side Lying Hip Lift is a bodyweight exercise that strengthens the outer hip.
Only the top leg moves during the exercise. The ability to maintain a steady upper body, also strengthens the core muscles. Shoulders remain in place.
Modification: If you wobble during the exercise, or if your shoulders rise up, bend the bottom knee into a 90 degree angle. 3) Lean against a wall.
