Dr.Colin demonstrates working the gluetus medius muscle using a resistance band preforming the fire hydrant exercise.
This is a great stabilization exercise to help improve balance and stability of the hip, knee, and ankle. Some tips for this exercise:
1. Drive the leg back at an angle leading with your heel
2. Keep an upright posture
3. Keep both legs at a slight bend
4. Squeeze those glutes throughout the entire exercise.
