I needed to target those glutes and hamstrings this morning. Since I don't have a GHD or a partner, this is my solution to getting as close to Glute Hamstring Raises done. Hey a girl has got to do what a girl can do, right? 💪
Glute Hamstring Raises are a great exercise to help with those lifts🏋️♀️ and running🏃♀️. Since I do both I want to make sure I am strengthening them to help me out and unfortunately most women's hamstrings are weaker, which can lead to knee issues. No one wants that!!
Look, we can always come up with a reason why we can't do something, that is easy. It is finding the reason why we should do something and thinking of a solution to help solve it that is hard, which shouldn't stop us! There is always a way to achieve what we need to get done. Do some research, try out a movement, preferably safely, ask for help, make a change in when it needs to get done, and etc. Basically it is about finding ways that will work for you at that given time.
Want to try out the above exercise? Here are a couple of tips to help you out.
1. Make sure your feet are placed against the wall, hip width apart, padding under the knees, resistance bands are at hips and allow them to help assist you with the movement.
2. Brace those core muscles and feel those hamstrings lengthen as you slowly move into extension, make sure you don't arch your back and keep those hands just up front to help with landing and pushing back to the beginning position.
