Lateral Leg Raises

posted by Brandon
Lateral Leg Raises

The Lateral Leg raise is a Pilates movement that much like the clams and fire hydrants, engages the glute muscles. This exercise is great if coupled with the kick backs as it addresses the lateral range of motion, opening up the adductors while engaging the glute muscles.

Preparation: Lay on your right side with your legs extended out and stacked one atop the other.  Head can be supported with right hand.

Execution: Engage your left glute muscles and slowly lift up your leg keeping your foot in a neutral position.  Knee should remain locked.  Repeat 5-8x on each side.

Variations for All: To help strengthen various parts of the hip complex repeat this exercise with your toes pointed upwards and then with your toes pointed downwards.  Runners Feed recommends doing 5 repetitions in each of the three ways on each side.

      For example, I am in the guest house, I roll and leave the guest house. I then use my Roll Again card and re-enter the guest house.Is this legal?I know you can’t enter the same room you have just came out of, but does the card give you a new’ turn?
