Swiss Ball: Abductors

Here is a fun, subtle way to target various leg abductor muscle fibers:

Get a medium-sized Swiss ball and place it between your hip and leg, between you and the wall. Stand with legs shoulder-width apart. Squeeze your leg against the Swiss ball, which is squeezed against the wall. Repeat for ten sets of ten repetitions.
