The Fire Hydrant is another exercise for strengthening & building your glutes and improving your hip mobility & flexibility.
With your Short Loop / Booty Band:
- Start on all fours with your wrists under your shoulders and the hips over your knees.
- Position the band above your knees, keep your back flat, your core engaged and look down at the floor.
- Slowly & with control, lift one leg to the side.
- Pause briefly when you can't move your leg any further before slowly bring it back to the start.
Repeat on 1 leg for 8-12 reps and then swap to the other leg.
Aim for 3 sets on their own or as part of a circuit.
Not happy with calling it the Fire Hydrant, maybe try referring to it as Doggie Style. See what happens...
