Standing Hip Extension

The Standing Hip Extension exercise works on building strong glute and hamstring muscles to strengthen hip joint. It is an exercise that also challenges our single-leg balance and core stability. Start by standing with weight in one-leg and the other foot resting behind. Engage core and hold onto rail for support.  Keeping leg straight, lift back foot into the air.  Control the descent phase by slowly lowering back to the ground. Try for 8-10 reps on one side, and then swap to repeat on the other leg. Repeat for 2-3 sets on both sides.
