Lateral Slide Lunge - Hip Stabilising Exercise

The Lateral Slide Lunge is a wonderful exercise for stabilising the hip as it focusses on strengthening gluteus medius. Glute Med is responsible for keeping the pelvis in position when standing on one leg and walking. When glute med is weak or not functioning correctly it can cause you to swing or rotate into your hip joint when you're walking or standing on one leg. This instability can cause lower back pain because of misalignment, so there can be referred pain down the leg as the body will compensate by using other muscles to stabilise. By using glute med the Lateral Slide Lunge stabilises the pelvis by strengthening the hips, knees and ankles in alignment.

I am currently offering online Pilates classes and online Pilates Personal Training via Zoom. I can help with injury rehabilitation, pain relief, postural alignment and general fitness.
