Place the hip loop around both of your legs and pull it up slightly above the knees.
Position your body in a side-lying position and bend your legs. While keeping your feet together, externally rotate the top leg to create space between the knees. Do not allow your torso to rotate.
Hold the top of the rep for 3 seconds before slowly bringing your knee down to starting position. Repeat for 2 sets of 6 to 8 reps for activation. Progress the exercise with longer holds or more reps.
