Regardless of whether you workout regularly, it’s possible you’re overlooking an important muscle in your training: the gluteus medius. This muscle is found just under the largest and strongest muscle in the body, the gluteus maximus— the glute muscle that gets the most attention in the gym.
The gluteus medius, however, does a lot of work for you, too. It’s the main gluteal muscle responsible for any movements you do that involve hip abduction—so, stepping sideways—as well as maintaining hip stability—so, keeping you balanced.
That’s why I’m sharing these two exercises in this YouTube short; please watch!
Single RDL (Romanian Deadlift) into a Knee Lift with Rotation
Crossover Lunge into Hip Abduction
HOPE YOU’LL GIVE THESE A TRY!
