Two Resistance Loop Band Exercises For Butt and Hips

In this video, Faye demonstrates two useful exercises that work the glutes and hips along with the inner thigh muscles. These two are effective even without any equipment, but the exercise band that she wraps around her thighs just amplifies the benefits. Faye mentions that she uses the Sleek-Tone brand because she likes the bands' sturdiness and also likes the three choices of resistance level in each set. <br><br>Faye emphasizes the importance of form in these workouts. For these two particular exercises, she begins from an all-fours position on hands and knees, with hands directly below shoulders and knees below hips, head up and stomach muscles tight. <br><br>

<br><br>The first one is commonly called &quot;The Fire Hydrant&quot;, a name she finds a little &quot;inelegant&quot;, so she decides to rename it &quot;The Sleek-Glutes&quot;. It especially works the side of the glutes. The leg is extended laterally with the knee bent at a 90 degree angle. For a more challenging cardio workout, simply pick up the pace. Any exercise that is done to one side should of course be done to the other side as well.<br><br>The second exercise is a heel-press. Again, the Sleek-Tone band she favors is around her thighs to increase the resistance and the value of the routine. She extends one leg back and pushes her heel towards the ceiling, then pulls it all the way in. This again strengthens the glutes and the sensation will be obvious. Faye next demonstrates a crossover variation, crossing one leg over the other to tone the inner thigh muscles. We recommend three sets of at least ten reps on each side, at a resistance level for which the ten reps is challenging.<br><br>Resistance bands have risen in popularity in the last few years as both serious athletes and casual exercisers discover what they can add to a workout routine. These elastic bands also have the clear practical advantages of being easy to carry and economical. <br><br>Faye emphasizes how important it is to vary our workouts. Our bodies are efficient and soon adjust to new exercises. But this efficiency can work against our efforts to get stronger and more toned. Therefore, changing up our exercise routines, and even adding small variations to a given exercise, can help us add strength and flexibility more quickly.<br><br><br><br><br><br>
