How to do a glute kick back, the side kick.

So, you're going to be on all fours on your hands and your knees. Make sure, starting position, your shoulders are aligned with your wrists. You keep that back flat, no arch, no curve. The belly button stays pulled to the spine so your abs stay engaged so there's no pressure in that lower back.

For the side kick you're going to bring your knee all the way up to your armpit, and then push it all the way back just like you would be kicking. So, you're going to take one leg. Bring it all the way up to your armpit. Keep the foot flexed. The knee stays bent. Then you're going to push it all the way back and dig through that heel. You're really going to feel that squeeze in the glute as you kick back with that heel.

And you're going to bring it back all the way into the armpit, and then press it right back out. Just like that. So, in, and out. Again, really focus on keeping those abs tight here. If you start arching your back like this you can cause injury in that lower back area, and it loses the focus on the glute area.

So, take it all the way in. Press it straight back. Same thing other side. You take it all the way up to your armpit, and press it straight back just like that. In, and out. So, again, you can do ten to twelve on each side. You can do a few different sets of this. You can do ten, ten, give yourself a little rest, and then do it two more times to really tire out the glutes here.

Also, just make sure when you are kicking back you try and keep most of the weight on which ever side of the body that you're working. So, we're working the right side right here. The right glute is engaged. You want to really focus on keeping the weight on your right side, your right arm. A tip I usually give is to take both hands, bring them together here, bring that knee all the way up, and kick it back so you really focus on keeping all that weight on that side.

That's how you do a glute kick back side kick.
