Tight glutes? Stretch your bum!
Tight glutes? Lower back pain…? Give this stretch a go!
Stretching the glutes is an important part of any training program. Regular stretching helps improve flexibility, increases range of motion and reduces the risk of injury caused by lesions of the connective tissue.
1. Lie on your back with the neutral pelvis and bring your right ankle across the left knee and press gently with your hand on the right knee.
2. Bring your left leg towards your chest maintaining the position throughout the exercise.
For an extra stretch, flex the right foot.
Hold for 4 deep breaths and with each exhale, push the knee of your stretching leg away from you whilst pulling the other leg in.
Repeat 3 times for each leg.
