Here are the Three Best Glutes Exercises using a Massage Ball:

 

Exercise #1: Squash Against the Wall

Best Glutes Exercises using a Massage Ball: Squash Against the Wall

We cover the ball with a towel so it doesn’t mark the wall before squashing the ball against the wall with your glutes (the muscles at the back of the hips). Try out different places on the glutes to see where is tight and an area you want to work on. Move the ball around – up-down, side-to-side, or around in a circle.

Aim: 1-2 minutes and then move on to the other side.

Exercise #2: Glutes Stretch

For this on you’ll need to get on the floor. With the ball on the floor, lift yourself up to get the left glutes on the ball. Place your left foot over your right knee, which will put the glutes on a stretch. Start rolling the ball around, up and down, side to side, around in a circle. Try to find any tight spots.

Aim: 1-2 minutes and then move on to the other side.

Exercise #3: Hip Rotations

As with exercise #2 above, you’ll have the ball on the floor and lift yourself up to get the left glutes on the ball. Straighten the right leg and bend the left knee, placing the left foot out to the side. Slowly move the left knee over to the midline (over to the right) and then return to the start position.

Options:

  • Counting: 2-3 x 10 repetitions
  • Time: 1-2 minutes

Repeat on the other side.
