This video clip was filmed after an tough hour group class and the glutes were certainly feeling the workout! .
Quite wobbly this time as my muscles were tired and should have had the hanging leg straight but corrected it before the end of the video clip

Strengthening the core, glutes and hamstrings.

With even the simplest exercise it’s important for the body to be correctly aligned for the exercise to be targeting the muscles properly.
When in rehab after a knee ligaments injury and little or no exercise for weeks- it’s best to get the basic core strength muscles activated before launching back into the same advanced levels of exercise as before.
Repetitions increase daily.
The instructions are in the video voice-over together with my actions. With thanks to Tessa @bh_beyondhealth
When you have a knee injury, unable to exercise as usual, and you’re hyper-mobile, muscles quickly switch off especially the glute, core and hamstrings.
It’s starting over again with the most basic fitness exercises.
To kick start muscle memory and functionality, tie a stretchy band knotted at the ends over a door frame, and pull down.
Then weight transfer from leg to leg and lift knee. The action of pulling on the bands will help switch on and engage core and glutes.
