About Lateral Monster Walks
Wait for it....there he is! Daniel gives the thumbs up on Lateral Monster Walks that is an effective exercise for individuals who are having issues due to poor activation or weakness of the glutes. Poor activation can lead to a number of ailments in many different body parts including knees, hips and even the back.
Monster Walks strengthen the lower body with an emphasis on lateral hip stability.
