Weak or inhibited glutes got you down? It’s ok! I have a fix! Try out this version of a glute bridge the next time you workout! It will help to strengthen your entire glute musculature. A lot of us are sitting on our ass all day, and our glutes become inactive from disuse. So if you don’t use them you may not know how to even turn them on!
Research has shown that athletes with weak glutes, can cause a host of running related injuries especially at the knee. However, your glutes are just a part of the posterior package. Other muscles included are the lower-back, hammy’s, and calves. One weak link in the chain, could cause a host of other problems!
Repeat 1 – 3 X for 10 reps with a 5s pause at the top
(Getting kisses from dog optional.)
Check out this blog I wrote a way back for more info on the glutes!
