Instructions: How To

This exercise is a more challenging variation of fire hydrant circles. It primarily targets the muscles in and around your hips. This movement enhances hip mobility, strengthens the glutes, and improves overall lower body stability and function.

  1. Secure a loop band around both your thighs above your knees.
  2. Kneel on the floor with your palms on the ground directly beneath your shoulders.
  3. Engage your glutes and hips to raise one leg out behind you. Keep your core engaged for stability.
  4. Keep your glutes and hips engaged as you rotate your leg out to your side such that your inner thigh faces the floor.
  5. Slowly allow your leg to descend back into the starting position.
  6. Maintain good posture and stability by keeping your core engaged and your back straight.
  7. You should feel this exercise primarily in your glutes and hips.
