Can’t Squat or Lunge Due to Bad Knees? This Workout Is for You

Many of us experience knee pain as some point, either because of injury, disease (arthritis) or age (any of us over 40 has felt a twinge or two!). And many of you share that you cannot do a squat or lunge without pain. No worries; there are a ton of exercises you can to do strengthen your glutes (bum) without performing one squat or one lunge.

In this video, I share exercises you can do lying on your belly (prone) to strengthen your glutes. This requires hip extension and NO movement of your knees! We will do an “oldie-but-goodie” exercise lying on your back (supine), one on your side to focus on your gluteus medius, and one exercise that requires a wall.
