Side Leg Raises

Helps prevent iliotibial band syndrome.

Lie on your side, with your upper leg straight and your lower leg bent slightly at the knee. Place your upper hand on the floor in front of your chest for support. Slowly raise the upper leg as high as comfortably possible, then lower it again slowly. Do two or three sets of ten repetitions on each side.
