The main exercises for your lower body are designed to strengthen (in order of importance) your Quadriceps, Calf Muscles, Gluteal Muscles & Hamstrings, Hip Flexors (see below).
Bridging: (Gluteals & Hamstrings)
Marching: (Hip Flexors)
The exercises above are very simple ones that should be easy for you to follow. To build strength you should be doing around 3 lots of 10 repetitions. Using weight or stretchy band for resistance greatly helps build muscle tissue. If 3 lots of 10 repetitions are too easy you can do more or add more resistance. What ever way you coose to tackle it you should feel a little fatigued in the muscles for best results.
Naturally exercises can get very specific and varied. If you have a genuine issue, diagnosis or concern you should consult your Physiotherpaist or General Practitioner to obtain a tailored program.
