The single-leg hip raise with foot on step builds strength through the glutes and hamstrings. Performing the exercise on a box will allow for a deeper stretch in the bottom position of the movement.
- Keep your foot underneath your knee throughout the exercise. Avoid having it out too far in front of you.
- Keep your heel firmly pressed into the step throughout the movement. The majority of force should come through your heel.
- Squeeze your glutes as hard as possible at the top of the movement.
