If you have difficulty walking or going up or down stairs, you may have a posterior chain issue. This means that your hamstrings and glutes are not working the way that they are intended. Today’s Weekend Workout! is meant to specifically address posterior chain dysfunction, although it’s good for anyone who wants to strengthen their hamstrings and glutes.
Weekend Workout! is a 20-30 minute Pilates and yoga-inspired workout. Every Saturday, I have a new, focused, free workout. Frequently, I use suggestions or questions from my readers. If there are any exercises that you’d like to do or areas you’d like to target, let me know and yours may be next week’s Weekend Workout!
