This exercise would be the most challenging of all the exercises for the pelvic floor/Hip Muscles, due to the demand of strength on the muscles it takes to keep the leg slightly elevated from the floor during the movement for each exercise.
For me, since I’ve hit this transition for a while, I normally do 2 sets of 10-15 reps of the leg raises, leg crossovers, & leg abduction, then repeat on the other side. Keep your foot flexed and not pointed during the exercises.
**If you are transitioning into this exercise start slow. 2 sets of 5-8 reps for each leg movement, repeat on other side
Remember, Slow and controlled movements.
**The only time a new exercise should be introduced/transitioned into is when the current exercise is mastered. You know when you have mastered that exercise when YOU can control that exercise and the intended muscle(s).
