Hip strength is an important part of being able to perform daily functions as well a contributing factor for hip, low back, or knee pain. These exercises can help strengthen the muscles around the hips and can be done at your home without equipment. Start with 1 set of 8-12 repetitions and you can progress to a second or third set if they are easy. Aim to perform these 2-3 times a week with at least one day in between.
