Day 279- Sidelying Bottom Leg Circles

This exercise works the inner thigh of the bottom leg in the side lying series.

To do this exercise you will need a mat.  Start by lying on your side with your head, ribs, and hips lined up with the back of the mat.  Reach your bottom leg long beneath you and cross your top leg in front.  Inhale into the back of the ribs and then exhale as you lift the bottom leg.  Breath continuously as you draw ten small circles with your bottom leg.  Repeat in the other direction.

Things to think about
Be sure that your lower leg is lined up with your pelvis, and that the circles enter the space behind your body as well as in front of your body.

If you are able to take your leg through a range of motion that is both in front and behind your body, then you are able to engage the adductors with every fascial connection.
