One of the most popular exercises for toning and strengthening the glutes are rear leg lifts. They can be done in the prone position or in a four-point position. If you choose the four-point position, it’s especially important to make sure your back is protected. After all, what good is strengthening your rear only to hurt your back in the process?
To keep your back safe, you’ll want to find a neutral “tabletop” position. This means that you don’t want your back swooped at all, nor do you want it rounded – you want it flat. Also, make sure your knees are set directly below your hips and your wrists and elbows and shoulders are in line and perpendicular to the floor.
