18. Standing Leg Circles
As you do this warm-up-like exercise you might be wondering how the heck it trains your glutes. But don’t worry, do a few circles or speed them up (while under control) and you’ll see why they’re included here.
How to do it:
From a standing position, balance yourself on your left leg. With your right leg straight and slightly off the floor, perform small circles (from the hip) in front, to the side, and then behind you. Aim for 3-5 circles both clockwise and counterclockwise at each angle. Your supporting leg glutes will be firing to stabilize your pelvis so be sure to stand tall and strong – no swaying.
