Weak glutes or not enough flexibility = A common problem in those with lower back pain or recurring thigh injuries is that the Gluteus Maximus muscle is inhibited and does not contract first, placing additional strain on the hamstrings. This delayed or reduced firing also results in a less stable sacroiliac joint which may account for lower back pain in some individuals.
Butt exercise: Targets gluteus maximus and hamstrings. Stand in front of chair, bend over and place left hand on seat, right forearm atop chair back; tuck pelvis and extend left leg behind you, foot flexed. Pulse left leg 10 times (lift and lower by 1 inch). Keeping left leg lifted, bend knee and then extend 10 times; then trace 5 clockwise and 5 counterclockwise circles with leg. Hold leg lift for 5 counts. Switch sides; repeat.
