#6 Prone Leg Extension

Position: Prone

Description: Begin lying on your stomach with your elbows flexed under your shoulders for support. Keep your leg fully extended with your ankles, knees, and hips in line with each other. From here, squeeze your glutes as you push one leg up behind you. Slowly release and repeat for the prescribed repetitions. Repeat on the other side.

Targeted Muscle Group(s): Gluteus Maximus and Medius

Key Points:

  • Keep your core tight to avoid arching of the back.
  • Keep your head down to maintain a neutral spine.
  • Lift your leg up about 30 degrees off the floor.
