This exercise focuses on lateral hip strength and gluteal strength. Stand on a step or platform with your weight balanced on one leg. While keeping your knee straight, allow your pelvis to drop so that your non-weight bearing foot drops below the level of the step. Then lift your pelvis so that the foot comes back up to the step level and slightly above. Repeat several times on each leg. You should feel it working in your hips.
