Single Leg Glute Lift
This move will work your core, back, abs, glutes and legs.You can use a dumb bell or a kettle bell, I prefer a kettle bell.One of my favorites….as you can REALLY feel your abs working hard to help stabilize you. Practice the move without weights until you feel comfortable.
- Start with your feet together and your arms hanging at your sides, holding your bell of choice in your hand.
- Start with bell in right hand. Lift your right leg 2 feet behind you, put your left arm out to your side to counterbalance.
- Hinge forward bring the weight toward the floor while lifting your right leg 90 degrees, parallel to the floor.
- Return to starting point squeezing through your glutes to stand up.
- Aim for 12 to 14 reps and then switch sides. Once it becomes easier add another set of 12 to 14 reps, with a minute of cardio/plyometrics in before switching sides.
Before starting any exercise routine consult your doctor.
