Single leg side hoping is an excellent exercise to encourage lateral movements which can help stabilise the hip and pelvis. The exercise also works on function and range of movement of the ankle, hips, and builds core stability. This exercise also builds muscular endurance.

- Jump sideways while landing on the same leg
