An Easier Way To Improve Hip Health and Leg Strength

With your feet spread 2 or more shoulder widths apart, use an exercise ball to gently lower yourself down to one side - this is called a Cossack squat. Your opposite side foot should be planted on its heel with toes pointing up. Gently pulsate in this position, deepening the stretch felt in both hips. Repeat on the other side.

Do the same thing with both soles flat on the ground - this is called a side-to-side squat. Repeat gentle pulses on both sides.

When your hips feel warmed up, do full Cossack and side to side squats, using as much support as you need on the exercise ball.

This routine is excellent for hip health and lower body strength.
