How should I do a side leg raise?

With a weight in your right hand and your left hand on your waist, stand with your feet together, toes aligned. Rest the weight against your right thigh, bend your right knee and lift your right leg out to the side -- pushing the weight out to the side with it. Bring your thighs together and then repeat. If you have trouble balancing, move your waist hand to a wall. Work up to 25 reps each leg. To make it harder: Work up to 50 reps each leg.
