Muscles Worked in Fire Hydrants
Primary muscles worked:
How to Do Fire Hydrants
- Stand on all fours, with your gaze on the floor.
- Lightly brace your core, and lift your leg to the side by using your glute muscles. Lift your leg as high as possible while maintaining contact with your glutes.
- Slowly lower your leg and repeat for reps.
Fire hydrants is a suitable exercise to do at home, since it does not require any equipment. It can also be used to activate the glutes before a workout. If you want to make it more challenging, you can add a band around your knees or an ankle weight to your leg.
