Side Bridge Leg Abductions

Side Bridges with Leg Abductions strengthen the muscles associated with sideways movement and side flexion. The Gluteus medius muscle is particularly active during this movement. This exercise can be beneficial for preventing running injuries evolving from a weak Gluteus Medius. Most strength training exercises develop flexion and speed of forward movement. Side bridge leg abductions challenge lateral movement and strength, this can be helpful in sports players who require lateral speed. If this exercise is too difficult to perform combining a side bridge followed by lying leg abductions challenges similar muscle groups
