Hip Stability: Glute Exercise For Painful Hips


Did you know that if you often get stuck in a position where your hips are bent (eg sitting in a chair or a car), the glutes and hip stabilizers switch off?

This can lead to pain, dysfunction and difficulty with exercising or even normal, everyday activities.

However, we want to let you know that there's nothing for you to worry about, and there are exercises that can help you feel better right away!



Lay flat on you back with feet right up close to your bum as far as you can and nice and wide, about hip width.  

What you need to do next is to squeeze your butt and then lift your hips up off the floor as high as you possibly can, really squeezing nice and hard, and then come back down again.

Hold it up for a couple of seconds while squeezing your butt at the top of the movement.

For an added layer of difficulty, what you can do is, without letting your pelvis shift side to side or tip and twist, you want to balance on one leg, bring it back down, swap it over to the other leg as if you were marching on the spot, and then rest.


What next?

You can check out the video to see how it's done and we guarantee you it works really well to get your glutes active, your hip rotators fired up and your pelvis stabilized.

This is best done before you train, run or workout.

You'll find that your pelvis your hips and your legs will function a whole lot better, and you'll get less discomfort.
