Leg and Knee Exercises: Hip Pulls

Image

The following exercise helps build strong, balanced leg muscles. Make sure to adjust exercise machines as instructed by your physical therapist. He or she will tell you how many times to do the exercise.

  • Stand with one leg about 1 foot away from a wall. The other foot (attached to a pulley or rubber tubing) should be a step behind.

  • Pull your attached foot forward, keeping your knees straight but not locked. (Point your toe straight forward unless told otherwise by your therapist.)

  • Return slowly and steadily to your starting position.

Note: To prevent injury, always warm up and stretch before your strengthening exercises. Stop any exercise that causes pain. Discuss it with your physical therapist or doctor.
