Starting PositionExecution

Starting Position

  • lay down onto the ground or a fitness mat
  • bend your knee and let your heel find grip on the ground
  • the other leg remains straight onto the ground
  • place your hands in the neck

Correct Execution

  • lift your pelvis
  • guide the stretched leg upwards
  • the thigh of the lifted leg is parallel to the other one
  • head, shoulders and foot stay on the ground
  • thighs and upper body build a line
  • avoid lifting the pelvis more than necessary, otherwise you strain the lumbar spine too much
  • hold the position as long as you like
  • you can go back to the starting position or lift the pelvis again without touching the ground
  • repeat several times, do not forget the other side

tip for the workout

  • you can increase the difficulty of the glute exercise, if you arrange the foot a bit wider apart from your body
