My previous two posts demonstrated two exercises you should be doing to strengthen the deeper gluteal muscles. Now I am prescribing an exercise that requires a lot of balance and stabilization around the hip. This is by far the hardest of the three exercises. You may find it difficult to perform even 1 repetition, so begin with just doing 1 repetition on each leg at a time. Accumulate 5 reps on each side in a single training session. Gradually work your way up to performing 5 repetitions on each side in a row, for 5 sets, with approximately 1 minute break between sets.
Performing the 3 gluteal exercises as a warmup prior to your swings, squats, and deadlifts will prime the system for optimal performance, as well as prevent problems in hip stability and strength. You will surely notice a difference in mobility and strength in a matter of 3-4 weeks practice. So get to work!
