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.
