Tight Glutes ?
If you have been told your glutes are tight give these a go!
These stretches are great as they will target the glute muscles/muscle fibres that both extend the hip and externally rotate + abduct the hip, compared to typical glute stretches. 1) GLUTE STRETCH WITH FEET AGAINST WALL:
Advanced variation, targets the glute muscles that both rotate femur/lift it out to the side (crossing ankle over knee component) and extend the hip (sitting down into the stretch component).
2) 3 PLANAR MODIFIED PIGEON STRETCH:
Intermediate variation, sit straight back into the stretch > then perform back 45 degrees > then out to the side. This ensures you stretch out all areas of your glutes. Give these a go and let us know what you think! Our caring and friendly Chatswood or North Sydney Physio Team would love to help you out, so reach out to us if you have any questions!
