I'm in. I've been told I have trochanteric bursitis and encouraged to strengthen my glutes. I've been doing glute bridges, but squats would be good too.

I purchased a yoga mat and some 5 pound dumbells. going to add some light resistance to my workout. Also will make the cleanse soup to eat this week! It's pretty tasty and gently purges the system.
