8 BEST EXERCISES
Try these 8 gluteus medius exercises to improve hip stability and prevent back pain.
Sitting down most of the day?
Lie on your side and tap your toe to the front and back corners of your mat.
RAINBOW TOE TAPS
In side plank, lower your hip to the floor and squeeze to lift it up high.
SIDE PLANK HIP DIPS
In side plank or modified side plank, lift and lower your top leg. Don't wobble!
SIDE PLANK HIP ABDUCTION
Lie on your mat in bridge position with one leg up. Press through your heel to drive your hips up and slowly return down.
SINGLE LEG GLUTE BRIDGE
In high plank, tap your toe out to the side and back to plank. Use a slider for a smoother movement.
PLANK HIP ABDUCTION
On your hands and knees, lift and lower one knee to the side. Keep your core engaged for stability.
Work those glutes by stepping back into a curtsy position, then press through your heel to return to standing.
My favorite hip stability exercise! Keep your feet together as you open and close your knees.
Add in glute activation exercises 2-3 times per week & remember to stretch!
