Fitness: Home Exercise Videos For This Week - Glutes ExerciseSuggestions from Self Magazine

Saturday, April 09, 2016


Our glutes are an important muscle group.  It’s not just about fitting nicely into our favorite jeans. Our backside consists of three major muscles that are incredibly important to our hips – whether we’re extending, flexing or rotating. However, since most of the hours of our day are spent sitting, our glutes weaken, and sometimes our muscles atrophy, which may result in back pain and knee pain.


SELF.com came out with a few suggestions to strengthen our glutes.

My regular work-out usually consists of a 1 mile walk to Starbucks with my husband and a 30-minute home exercise routine from various trainers such as P90x guru Tony Horton, Insanity’s Shaun T, Jillian Michaels from the Biggest Loser and Isagenix Program Coordinator, Blake Shaver. Depending on my level of dedication, I set aside 1 hour a day, 3-5 times a week. The exercise only takes about 30 minutes but the other 30 minutes are set aside for setting up the room, preparing my body nutrition-wise, and a few minutes for warm-up.



It would be more time efficient if I stayed with one program, instead of deciding which routine to do for the day or week. For me, changing my exercise routine keeps the challenge alive and interesting

So, once in a while, I feel the need to spice it up.


I try different challenges and exercises. Just a friendly reminder, being fit is 80% nutrition and 20% exercise.

SELF magazine seems to come up with a few suggestions every week.




So here goes.
