How to Tone and Trim Your Hips

Trim Your Hips & Strengthen Your Core at the Same Time


This is a wonderful exercise to mobilise the hip joint, while using the core to keep the body still. If you're looking for a way to tone your mid-section and increase flexibility, these tips from Kaya Health Clubs' Gaynor Carter, make for a great entry point. Right this way. . .

  • Commence laying on the floor with one leg extended up to the ceiling at 90 degrees, the other leg is flat on the floor. (Or, it can be in a bent position with foot flat on the floor.)
  • Imagine you are drawing a circle on the ceiling with your big toe — the movement comes from your thigh bone, rolling around in your hip socket.

  • Repeat five anti-clockwise, and five clockwise. Repeat on the other leg.
  • Make sure you hold the body still, and isolate the movement into the hip socket. The size of the circle is dependant on you holding your body still.
