An exercise for thigh abductors as well as for the glutes and quadriceps. Improves the flexibility of hip joints.
Your starting position: legs shoulder width apart.
As you inhale, take a step to the side so that both feet are double shoulder width apart.
Slowly lower yourself bending the knee of your supporting leg. Keep the other leg straight.
At the bottom, the thigh should be parallel to the floor or slightly below.
As you exhale, return to the starting position.
If you have difficulties with coordination, try to hold to some support in the beginning.
Your back should always be straight.
Lower yourself very slowly to avoid ligament injuries.
