A simple exercise for building buttocks/glute strength.
- Lie on your back on the floor or on a yoga mat. Place your feet on top of the Pilates ball, bending your knees to approximately 90 degrees. Your arms should be resting out to the sides.
- Exhale and push into your heels to lift your buttocks off of the floor. Keep your core engaged at all times and avoid overarching your low back and also avoid shrugging your shoulders. Inhale and slowly lower your buttocks back to the floor, trying to keep your glutes engaged the whole way down.
Repeat 8-12 times, rest, then repeat the entire exercise if desired.
