Kneeling Side Extension

| Fitness Index


Move Targets: Glutes


Step 1: Rest one knee on the edge of the chair while holding onto the back of the chair. Keep your body in an upright position. Note: If you don't feel comfortable on the chair, you can do this move on the floor, holding onto the seat instead.


Step 2: With control and good pace, open up the leg to the side. Depending on flexibility, try to raise it just below the hip line. Keep your hips square and avoid sagging the opposite hip down toward the chair.


Step 3: Bend the leg and bring in front of you again to complete one rep. Move at an even speed without swinging the leg.
