This week’s video is on one of my favorite exercises to build and strengthen the glute muscles. Pay attention to the setup and process of this exercise, as it will make a HUGE difference in where you feel the exercise and its benefits. Although only two variations are shown in the video, more exist and this exercise can be progressed in many different ways. Happy watching and good luck building those glutes!
-Don't let the knees touch as you adduct toward your midline.
-First position is at about 130 degrees.
-Second position is sitting straight up (90 degrees).
-Third position is leaned forward to a roughly 45 degree angle.
-Start with light tension and build up as to perform the exercise correctly and see the greatest benefits.
Huge shout out to Bret Contreras (@bretcontreras1 on Instagram) for the original version of the exercise and for helping build glutes across the nation!
