Pilates Reformer Lateral Hip Slide

Use the pilates reformer to do a lateral hip slide. This activates the gluteus medius muscles while maintaining proper positioning and control of movement.

  • Standing on the reformer, ensure your feet are in good alignment.
  • We’re doing a lateral hip slide to engage the gluteus medius muscle, which is one of the stabilizer muscles of the hip.
  • Keeping our core right between our legs, pushing out and then controlling the return.

Often we do this at home using some theraband exercises, but on the reformer it is a nice way to work on control.
