Do you spend too many hours chained to the desk at work?
When we spend all day sitting on our backsides we can squash the life out of our all important gluteal muscles, these guys should be a powerhouse of low-back and core support so it pays to give them a regular wake-up call.
- Lie on the floor with your knees bent and feet flat on the floor.
- Squeeze your gluteals and push through your heels until you’re in a straight line from knee and hip to upper body; your shoulders should remain on the floor.
- Hold for about 15 seconds to start with and aim to progress to 1 minute.
