Side Balance Leg Circles FWD/BWD
To do Side Balance Leg Circles Forward and Backward, start on one knee with your other leg straight out to the side. Then place your hand down to the outside of your knee so you are a side balance position almost like a Side Plank.
Then lift the straight leg up to about parallel to the ground and begin to circle the leg from the hip. Make as big of circles as possible. Complete all circles forward then go backward. Make sure to keep the leg up and feel the outside of your glute and hip working.
While making big circles, don’t let that mean your leg really lowers toward the ground. You want to go above but not that far below parallel as you make the circle.
