The 12 Exercises of Christmas! Glute Band Special



A festive workout to keep you moving over the Christmas period. All you need is a glute band! If you don’t have one, look no further than my brand Girls Who Lift

Start by doing just number 1:

1 x Banded glute bridge with 20 pulse outs


Then add in number 2:
