Glute Activation – 10 Must-Do Exercises

Glute Activation – 10 Must-Do Exercises

Many of the AMAZING glute activation exercises that we should all be doing are those funny looking moves that Jane Fonda used to do in her leotard with ankle weights.

They are the moves that most people, especially guys, avoid.

However, everyone from the professional athlete to the guy or gal sitting behind the desk for 9 hours a day (especially actually that guy or gal with a desk job) should do those funny looking glute activation moves!

Glute activation can help you reduce your risk of injury and even alleviate your lower back pain by relaxing overactive hip flexors AND by getting your glutes to fire efficiently and effectively so that your lower back and hamstrings don’t compensate and become overworked.

Because so many of us spend so much time seated, our hips can become tight and our glutes can become underactive.

So getting them firing efficiently is key!

When your glutes are strong you’ll also find your running speed and endurance improves AND you can lift more!

Plus, strong glutes look pretty darn nice too!

And you can accomplish all of this by using those SILLY LOOKING ISOLATION MOVES!

Glute activation exercises should be included in your warm up to establish that mind-body connection so you can effectively recruit the muscles during your compound lifts or runs.

This will help you use proper recruitment patterns so your lower back doesn’t become overworked!

You can also include these more isolated moves in your supplemental circuits OR even as a nice quick finisher to your workout routine!
