Lower Back and Glute Exercise
This is an excellent bodyweight exercise for strengthening your lower back, glutes, and core.
You need a sturdy counter top or desk that you can hang your legs off of as shown. Your belly button should be on the supporting structure but not much more. Reach past your head and grab the sides of the counter top or table to support yourself.
Keeping your feet together with your toes and knees pointing straight down, raise your legs until your body is perfectly straight. Squeeze your glutes at the top, and then control the decent before repeating. Like all others, this exercise is all about control! Don’t swing your legs or go into a giant arch at the top of the movement.
This bodyweight exercise is great for both beginners and advanced users. Beginners can start with 3 sets of 8-12 reps with 30 second rest intervals. Advanced users can do sets of up to 50 reps.
