Today we are focusing on our Glutes.

In order to make the most of these potentially powerful muscles they need to be activated. So often the Glutes (gluteus; maximus, medius and minimus, aka our bottom muscles) are underused. The glutes are mainly responsible for keeping us upright, propelling our body forward and providing protection for our backs and knees.

Following on from Mary's focus yesterday on Active feet, if we do specific exercises to strengthen our glutes, the recruitment of these muscles will be all the more effective when we foot roll.

I hope you have a restful Easter Sunday, your glutes will have earned it after this.


These workouts have been designed for clients of Nordic Walking East Anglia, who have all been taught the correct Nordic Walking technique by a qualified British Nordic Walking Instructor.  They have also been shown how to perform these exercises in face to face lessons; this film is merely a prompt. Individuals participate in these exercises at their own risk and must ensure they have adequate and non-slip floor space in which to participate and agree that they have no health concerns that prevent them from taking part.  These exercises are designed to be carried out outside, however, if individuals perform the warm-up and cool-down sessions indoors there is a danger of collision with or damage to furniture, light fittings, etc. as well as potential for injury
