Now that you have a new found knowledge of just how important your gluteus medius is in the health of your low back, knees and breath, you want to awaken the strength of this middle sibling of the gluteus maximus and gluteus minimus.
Practicing Yoga Tune Up® Prasarita Lunges and putting emphasis on the pushing out to move from side to side will exercise and strengthen your gluteus medius.
Also, you can work on your balance and range of motion at the hip joint by incorporating Yoga Tune Up® Moonrises. Try completing 20-25 reps on one side before switching sides.
