GLUTES: Strengthening the weak areas
“Women are very weak in their gluteus minimus and medius,” Doddato said. “It leads to a lot of swaying in the swing.”
This two-part stretch, which includes hip abduction and hip rotation, targets the glutes and obliques.
Assume a modified plank position by turning sideways and propping yourself up on one elbow with legs outstretched and one knee resting on the ground. Raise the opposite leg in the air, keeping your hand on your hip and your toe pointed in front of you.
