Hi, guys. It's Faith Dey, and I'm here at Princeton Club West in Madison, Wisconsin, and we're talking about hip and thigh exorcises that don't strain the knee. So usually when we do exorcises like that we're going to eliminate lunges and squints for a while just to take the pressure off the knees, but you can do some things lying on your back with a half ball or a full exorcise ball. That can address your glutes or your hamstrings especially. So I'll show you both. If you're are lying on your back and your heals are on top a half ball all we're going to do is a simple hip lift and you'll feel your glutes and your hamstrings contract. Now for a little more intensity take a full exorcise ball and press your heals in to the ball while raising your glutes off the floor, keep your glutes off the floor while you roll the ball in and you'll feel immediately your hamstrings fire and your glutes are contacted. Take that roll about 10 to 15 times and you'll get a great workout without straining the knees. Take both exorcises, do those about 2 to 3 times a week and see how you feel. Now if you need more help just visit me at faithdeyfitness.com.
