WORKOUT WEDNESDAY💪🏽

“Working your core” doesn’t always mean doing sit-ups and planks. It’s true that those exercises strengthen the abdominals which are PART of your core, but they do little for the powerhouse muscles that surround the pelvis; the buttocks or gluteal muscles.

The glutes hold our pelvis level and steady, extend our hip, propel us forward, and keep our legs, pelvis, and torso aligned. So when our glutes are faulty, our entire kinetic chain gets disrupted. Studies link glute weakness to Achilles tendinitis, shin splints, runner’s knee, and iliotibial-band (IT Band) syndrome.

Strengthen your glutes with these five butt-busting (in the literal sense) exercises.

Repeat each exercise 3-5 times.

  1. Glute Activation Floor Bridge: 15-20 Reps

  2. Side Plank with Clamshell: 12-15 Reps each side

  3. Kettlebell Deadlifts: 12-15 Reps

  4. Resistance Band Jump Squats: 20-30 Reps

  5. Bulgarian Split Squat: 12-15 Reps each leg

As always work within YOUR pain free available range and meet your body where it is.
