Midweek Madness

31 Exercise of The Week - Hip Extensions

Strong, proper functioning glutes can go a long way to alleviating nagging pain in the knees and low back. Hip extensions, while having your knees bent have been shown to be one of the best glute building exercises. Proper hip position means better posture and could a key reason why you haven't achieved that flat tummy quite yet.

Technique: Lie flat on your back, with your knees bent at 90 degrees. Make sure your low back is pressed firmly into the floor. squeeze your glutes and extend your hips up, pressing down through your heels. Think about getting your hips above your belly button and rib cage. When performed right, in the beginning you may feel nice stretch in your hip flexors. Start with double legs, then continue on to more advanced single legs, holds, and weighted hip extensions.
