Lazy Butt Exercise Series - Week 3 - Glute Medius

This week we are focusing on the Glute Medius muscle which is a stabilising muscle of the hips. It also externally rotates the hip keeping good alignment for the leg muscles which prevents ITB tightness and knee injuries.

In this video, our trainer Oisin demonstrates an exercise called the Fire Hydrant. Keep your arms straight, spine in neutral position and tail tucked under. Make sure the movement is coming from your butt slowly and with control. Do this 10 times each side x 3 sets, 4 times per week reducing to twice.
