Airplane Hip Opener

The "Airplane Hip Opener" is designed to improve balance and hip strength. Begin by standing on one leg next to a sturdy object, like a fence or a squat rack. You can place one or both of your hands on the rack for support. Begin by bending forward, while keeping your back straight. Lower your chest until it's just about parallel to the ground. Remember to lead the rotation with your knee that's not on the ground, not your ankle. Open your hip to the outside and hold this position for 2 to 5 seconds, then slowly return to your starting point. Try 4-8 rotations, then switch to the other leg.
