Glutes or booty, are not there on our body to just look pretty (never heard anyone complaining ) but helps with hip stabilization, balance, and power. Strong medial glutes guide you through every step, stabilizing you, propelling you, and protecting your knees and lower backfrom unnecessary strain by taking on much of the workload involved in lower body movement. That includes any side-to-side action that you might take in an agility workout.
Our today's Glute exercise is Bridging with variations !!
1. Neutral Bridging - 3 sets x 15 reps
2. Bridge with heel lifts - 3 sets x 20 reps
3. Bridge with marching- 3 sets x 10 reps on each leg
Lie down face up, with arms by your side, knee bent and feet hip width apart. You can get that by first joining your feet together opening from toes in a V and then opening heels to parallel.
Glute, Hamstrings, core, back strengthening and balance. Some tips:
Maintain the stability of your hip by keeping it square.
press into your feet and squeeze your glutes to lift hip up towards the ceiling.
Reach your knees away from the shoulder as you lift your butt up.
Don't Arch your back or pop your ribs out to get more range of movement. Activating abs will help you keep lower back and front part of your body stable. For heel lifts, usually the bridge lifts up because of it. Make sure as you press the heels back down, you do not loose the extra length that was created Marching in bridge challenges your hip stability. Make sure you do not sway your hip and use glutes to keep it square. Keep the 90 degree shape of the leg as you lift up from the hip. Do not move from your knee. #befitbecauseyoudeserveit #YasminsBodyImage #yasminfitnessmantra #BeFitwithYasminKarachiwala #Pilates #PilatesMasterInstructor #PilatesIndia #BalancedBody #FletcherPilates #CelebrityTrainer #fitness goals
