Fire Hydrants

Fire Hydrants are yet another phenomenal exercise dedicated to glute activation. Keep in mind that a thorough stretch following this exercise is recommended as with any strengthening exercise.

Preparation: Begin on “all 4’s”. Make sure your arms are locked out, your back is flat and your head is facing the ground.

Execution: Keeping your back flat and your knee bent at 90 degrees slowly lift your left leg up and out to the side until it is level with your back. Repeat 5-10x on each side.
