Standing Leg Lifts

Leg lifts are an awesome way to get your upper glutes and hips toned and strengthened. This exercise is great for working that higher part of your glute that isn't always the focus of squats. This exercise works very similarly to the hip abductor machines at the gym.

REPS: 12-14
SETS: 2-3
FREQUENCY: 3-5 times per week


  • Stand
  • With straight legs, lift one leg at a time out to the side and as high as you can.
  • Try to keep your back up right and do not lean over with your upper body to compensate.
  • Go back and forth between legs.

ADVANCED MUSCLE CHALLENGE: Wear ankle weights or use resistance bands.
