Thigh and Buttocks Muscles with the Exercise Tube


Lie on your back on the floor or on a yoga mat. Double-up the exercise tube and place it over your hips, holding the tube against the floor with your hands. 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.

This is great! I have some of my clients do this with a weight resting on their hips too, in case you don't have a resistance band or your gym is low on them. A medicine ball will also work great. For you at home exercisers, you can use at home items for this as well, like bag of rice or even a laundry basket depending on how difficult you need the resistance to be!
