Have you been told that you need to strengthen your gluteus medius?You found the right video! This video will break down our 3 favorite gluteus medius exercises!
The exercises in this video include:
1)Clam Internal & External Rotation - Oftentimes individuals perform their clams in hip flexion, however, try this variation to better activate your glutes. Beginning in an internally rotated position will allow for more range of motion into hip external rotation and abduction.
2) Single Leg Squat - Band - As simple as this exercise is, it is GREAT at targeting your glutes in all 3 planes of movement. Allow the elevated leg to kick back and move into a trunk lean to even better bias your glutes.
3) Side Plank - Hip Abduction - This exercise ranked #1 (bottom leg) and #2 (top leg) in terms of EMG activity of the Gluteus Medius based on a study by Boren et al. in 2011. If this is too difficult either perform a side plank hold or try out the Side Plank On Knees - Hip Abduction (which is a very commonly prescribed exercise here at [P]Rehab!)
