Here are some strengthening exercises for turnout! 👉 make sure your body is warm before attempting any of these exercises 👉 exercise 1: clamshells! Lay on your side with your hips stacked on top of each other and your legs bent at a 90 degree angle. Keeping your ankles together slowly open your top knee. (don't go so far that your hips are no longer stacked) return to your starting position. Do 30 reps. And switch to the other side.
👉 exercise 2: sit on your butt with your legs straight out in front of you. Slowly lift one leg up in a parallel position, turn out, return to parallel and set back down. Do 20 reps. And switch to other leg.
👉 exercise 3: lay on your stomach with you hands underneath your forehead and your legs straight out behind you. Activate one leg (straight, turned out, pointed) lift slightly above the ground and return to starting position. Do 20 reps. And switch to other leg.
👉 exercise 4: stand up in 6th position (parallel with legs together) and squeeze your glutes to turn out your legs from the hips which should press the backs of the calfs and knees together. Do 8 reps.
👉 exercise 5: you will need a ballet Barre or a raised surface. This can be done in devant, a la seconde and derriere. Tendu one foot forward, turned out of course (slowly articulating through the arch). Turn the working leg in to parallel, back to turned out and back to your starting position. Do 8 reps in all positions on both legs.
I hope this helps! ❤
