[Purpose] The aim of this study was to examine the effects of exercise to strengthen the muscles of the hip together with lumbar segmental stabilization exercise on the lumbar disability index, lumbar muscle strength, and balance. [Subjects and Methods] This study randomly and equally assigned 40 participants who provided written consent to participate in this study to a lumbar segmental stabilization exercise plus exercise to strengthen the muscles of the gluteus group (SMG + LES group) and a lumbar segmental stabilization exercise group. [Results] Each evaluation item showed a statistically significant effect. [Conclusion] Clinical application of exercise in this study showed that lumbar segmental stabilization exercise plus exercise to strengthen the muscles of the gluteus resulted in a greater decrease in low back pain disability index and increase in lumbar muscle strength and balance ability than lumbar segmental stabilization exercise in chronic low back pain patients receiving the exercise treatments during the same period.

I would like to see what kind of exercises they used for both glute and core stability.

It's weird that they have so much information about the exercises, such as, allowed a small degree of posterior tilt, some increase in intrathoracic pressure, and numbers like % max voluntary contraction and length of hold times, but they never named the exercises. The even mentioned body position like, supine, prone, and quadruped. At least we can some what figure out similar exercises that should exhibit a similar affect.
