Hip External Rotation Strengthening with a Therapy Band

Securely attach a therapy band to the upper part of a leg of a chair or table. Securely attach the other elastic end of the therapy band to the middle of your left thigh. Stand perpendicularly to the waist-high chair or table and rest your right hand on it for support.

Next, lift your left knee to 90 degrees. Keeping your left thigh parallel to the floor, rotate your left hip inward and then slowly rotate it outward. As you rotate your left hip outward you'll feel the muscular contraction in the outside of your left thigh and hip. Relax and return to the starting position.
