Here are some of the best hip exercises to include in your hip workouts.
Your hip moves in many directions and many leg exercises work the hips. Multi-joint exercises like lunges, squats, and the leg press machine all work the hip muscles.
On this page, we will focus on single joint hip strengthening exercises. Single joint exercises simply focus on the hip by itself without much emphasis on the knee or ankle.
The hip can move forwards (flexion), backwards (extension), out to the side (abduction), and in towards the middle (adduction).
You can exercise your hip in each direction to strengthen individual hip muscles with many different tools.
