Two exercises that will help tone your hips and glutes

The abdominal muscles are usually the first thing that will come to a person’s mind when you hear the words “strengthening your core” in a fitness environment. While the abs are a major player when it comes to supporting the trunk, there are other muscles that play an important role as well.

Hips and glutes are two very important muscle groups that help support your trunk otherwise know as your “core.”  They also help support your pelvis.  A stable pelvis can help prevent knee injuries which in turn helps you stay active and maintain your weight.  When you strengthen all of your core muscles you don’t just look better, you contribute to your overall wellness.

In today’s video I’m sharing two simple exercises that you can use to help strengthen your hips and glutes. The exercises are easy to follow and you don’t need any equipment to do them.  Take a moment to watch the video and if you have any questions for me leave them in the comment section on my website or leave a comment on my Facebook page and I will respond.

Have a great week!

With Love,
