Maintain Hip and Leg Strength While Avoiding Knee Discomfort
Squats are an essential movement that targets your hips and legs. But if you find yourself unable to squat due to knee soreness or injuries, it doesn’t mean you have to give up on your lower body strength goals.
Here are five exercises that will help you maintain strong and healthy glutes without a single squat!
A mini-band, used in a few of these, is a helpful & affordable prop that should be a staple in any home gym. Two yoga blocks are used to elevate your heels in Bridge, but you could use a step instead.
Start with 10 reps of each exercise, gradually increasing to 15 reps. Aim to complete 2-3 sets, incorporating them into your routine 2-4 times per week. Consistency is key, and you’ll soon experience the noticeable difference in your glute strength and overall lower body health.
Don’t let knee discomfort hold you back! Try these alternative exercises and unlock the power of strong and healthy glutes. Your lower body will thank you for it!
