Hip Extension from Prone
The hip extension in prone exercise may also be known as a reverse straight leg raise. It is a good starting point for strengthening the glute and hamstring muscles.
- To strengthen the hamstrings and buttock muscles the athlete lies on their front and raises the thigh upwards off the couch.
- Keep the knee straight throughout.
- Slowly lower the leg back down and then repeat.
- Ensure that the buttock muscles are contracted to initiate movement.
