Pilates Reformer Hip Slide

Use the pilates reformer to activate gluteus medius muscles while maintaining proper positioning and control of movement.

Now I’m standing on the reformer, with my feet in good alignment doing a lateral hip slide to engage my gluteus medius muscle which is one of the stabilizer muscles of the hip. In this position, we’re keeping our core right between our legs, pushing out and then controlling the return and often we do this at home using some theraband exercise, but on the reformer this is a nice way to work on control.
