Hip Circles

   

    

Begin the exercise on all fours.  Take one knee forward and bring your hip around making a circle with your knee.  For backwards hip circles, extend your thigh and bring your knee around the front drawing a circle with your knee.  Try to focus on keeping most of the movement at your hip, and try to make as big a circle as you can.  With both movements keep your shoulders and hips square to the floor, and be sure not to rotate at your lower back.
