I'm Jeremy Shore for LIVESTRONG.COM, here to talk about the best warm up exercises for the hips and the glutes. The hips and the glutes respond well to dynanic warm ups prior to training or competition. By taking the hips through a wide range of motion, you'll end up creating more mobility, at the same time activating the glutes preparing you for motion. Let me show you four of my favorites. To begin with, we'll do a reverse prisoner lunge. Place the hands behind the head, interlocking the fingers; standing tall. You'll step back with one foot, dropping down to a partial lunge and slightly leaning back to lengthen the hip flexors. We'll hold that for two seconds and then switch sides, repeating for six to eight repetitions on each side. From there, we'll move into a step over which would, this will help open up the hips. Stand tall, I'm going to have you step out and over, alternating legs. Stay nice and tall, up and over. Same thing, six to eight repetitions. Then, we can move immediately into a Spider-Man lunge. You come in to a push up position, bring the foot one at a time to the outside of the hand in front of you. Hold that for about two seconds and alternate feet. Repeat for six to eight repetitions on each side. Then we can finish up with a side to side lunge. Spread your legs pretty wide, feet straight ahead; I'm going to have you sit back to one side, keeping a straight line with the shoulder, knee and foot. You'll feel a goo stretch on the inside of the trail leg while activating the, the glute. Then, we're going to shift side to side, holding for about two seconds; one, two, one, two. Those are four great hip and glute warm up moves. I'm Jeremy Shore for LIVESTRONG.COM.
