Strength training: side bridge hip abduction

Our 12 Days of Christmas special continues


We continue our 12 Days of Christmas indoor training special with a strength training session for hip muscles.


Major muscles used

Gluteus medius


Increases strength in your hip muscles, to prevent dropping during running.

What to do

Lie on your side with legs straight, one leg on top of the other. Place your forearm under your shoulder to support your upper body weight. 

Raise your hips up off the ground while raising upper leg upward away from lower leg. Raise your leg to hip level. Return to the original position and repeat for 3 x 8 reps.

Alternate with the opposite side.


Look out for tomorrow’s turbo training session
