Description / Instruction:
To perform the hip lift on one leg you must lie on your back with one leg on the floor and the other leg in the air. Raise your hips to form a straight line by contracting your hamstring muscles. Pause at the top position. Slowly lower down to the floor and repeat for the desired number of repetitions. Change legs. The One leg Hip Lift develops the hamstring and gluteal muscles.
