HOW: Start this exercise on your side in which you want to strengthen. From this position, push your forearm and feet into the floor as you elevate yourself. As you elevate also thrust your hips forward so that your feet, hips, and shoulders are in a straight line. Stay strong in the shoulder blade in this position then begin with bringing your top foot up towards the ceiling (this is known as hip abduction).
FEEL: The entire side on the floor from the outer part of the bottom glute to the core up to the shoulder in contact with the floor.
COMPENSATION: Not keeping yourself in a straight line, not extending your hip fully, letting the scapula sag.
