No gluts no glory!
I’m sure at some stage you’ve been told that you need to strengthen your gluts to help your hip pain, your lower back pain, your knee pain or for various other reasons. ‘Sidelying gluts’ is a Pilates exercise that can get your gluts firing like you wouldn’t believe. All you need is a bit of floor space and a theraband, tubing or a Pilates home kit! With Christmas just around the corner, this is the perfect exercise to do over the break in the comfort of your own home.
In the video below you’ll find a number of variations that will challenge your glut activation differently depending on the variation.
In order of appearance:
1. Bend and straightening knee
2. Straight leg forward and back
4. Forwards cycling
5. Reverse cycling
6. Straight leg lift and lower
7. Straight leg lift and lower in hip turn out position
8. Straight leg walking up the wall
9. Forward hip circles
10. Reverse hip circles
